Cape Collinson Battery

Located at Cape Collinson, in the eastern district of Hong Kong Island, it was built in 1938 by the British troops stationed in Hong Kong to strengthen the defense of the eastern coast of Hong Kong Island. The fort was abandoned after World War II, and only some of the buildings remain today. Because of its beautiful scenery and built by the sea, it has been discovered by more and more mountain hikers and tourists, and it has become a hot check-point.

Transportation Information:
Take buses to Siu Sai Wan (Island Resort) Public Transport Terminus.

The Siu Sai Wan Public Transport Terminus is located by the sea. 

After coming out, walk along the coast (the sea is on the left when walking). 

After seeing the court, turn to the arrow to indicate the direction. 

Behind the stadium is the starting point of the outing route, and there are also toilets next to it. 

After going straight up the stairs, you will find that there are two roads. In fact, you can walk on both sides, and they will eventually meet at the same place. This time we choose the road on the right because it will be shorter than the road on the left. 

There are wild boars nearby. Do not provoke or feed wild boars. 

The initial section is a flight of stairs, but the steps are not high and easy to walk. 

There are some rest areas along the way. 

It takes about ten minutes to complete the first section of the road, and then connect to the Lung Yeuk Trail. 

Lung Yeuk Trail has a certain slope. 

Later, you will find a blue railing on the left side of Lung Yeuk. 

Go straight up the stairs. 

You can walk on both sides here. 

This road connects to Cape Collinson Road, follow the downhill direction (i.e. to the left). 

All the way down the Cape Collinson Road. 

Behind this building, there is a path leading to the abandoned power station during World War II. 

Go to the power station in the direction indicated by the arrow. I didn't enter this trail that day because there were many branches and weeds.

Continue to walk down to the position of the retaining wall. Note that there is a trail outside the railing on the opposite side of the retaining wall. 

Over the railing, the trail is clearly visible. 

The first section of the road is relatively sloping and dirt road, so you need to be more careful. 

Slowly it has been turned into a concrete road with a wide view. 

After seeing the long stone ladder, it shows that we have almost arrived at the fort! 

The stone house in front of you is the former site of the Cape Collinson Battery. There were originally one on the left and one on the right, but in 2018, Typhoon 山竹 flattened the fort on the left, and now only the one on the right.

The only one fort was severely damaged under the typhoon, but it was still a hot check-point. 

As shown in the picture, people like to take pictures from the inside of the fort. 

The picture presented is like a four-corner screen, which people call the "Big TV". 

I also follow the trend and take a picture on the "Big TV" to end this trip.

The weather is cloudy today, and the beauty of Cape Collinson is not shown. I look forward to taking pictures under the blue sky and white clouds next time.
