Get off at Hok Tsui Road.

Walk along Hok Tsui Road.

On the other side is the Stanley Peninsula, with pleasant scenery.

Hok Tsui Road is also a vehicular road, so pay more attention.

On the way through Nga Choy Hang Tsuen, the mailbox in Nga Choy Hang Tsuen is very interesting.

Hok Tsui Tsuen is one of the oldest villages in Hong Kong. There are the ruins of the school of Hok Tsui Tsuen and the Grade II historic building completed in the 19th century- Watchtower in Hok Tsui Tsuen.

The Hok Tsui Tsuen School was built in 1967 and is now abandoned.

Hok Tsui Tsuen has a history of more than two hundred years, and all the people‘s last name in the village are Zhu. There is a century-old building in the village, Watchtower in Hok Tsui Tsuen, is located opposite the school in Hok Tsui Tsuen. It was built in the 1920s, the whole is made of granite. It is about 4 meters wide and 9 meters high. There are gun holes in Watchtower. It is used to store valuable belongings of the villagers and even hide themselves against the enemy. 

After returning to Hok Tsui Road, you can see the coast far away. 

Arrive at the transmission station of the telecommunications company, because this is a private place, you can not enter the transmission station, but you can crossed by the side road. 

In addition to choosing to walk to here, you can also choose to take a taxi to here, and then walk to the Cape D'Aguilar Marine Reserve.

This was originally a green space, but it was the only pedestrian road leading to the Cape D'Aguilar Marine Reserve, so the plants withered. 

When you come to this intersection, go to the Cape D'Aguilar Lighthouse on the left and the Cape D'Aguilar Marine Reserve on the right. 

This time we visited the lighthouse first. Put into service on 16 April 1875, Cape D'Aguilar Lighthouse is the oldest surviving lighthouse in Hong Kong. 

Standing 9.7 metres tall, the lighthouse structure is a round granite tower. Both the tower base and the arched doorway are built of rustic stone blocks, while the iron door is crowned with a geometric decoration. Cape D’Aguilar Lighthouse was declared a monument in 2005. 

Come to the Cape D'Aguilar Marine Reserve, go to the coast later. Now continue walking straight, pay attention to the left, you can see a hole. 

This is Thunder Cave. Thunder Cave is a sea-eroded cave. The turbulent waves rushed into the narrow cave, making loud noises like thunder, and the momentum is extraordinary. 

After leaving Thunder Cave, go to the coast, here is a rocky beach.

The crab hole. It looks like a long-legged crab sitting on a rocky beach. 

Crab Cave is a popular photo spot in Cape D'Aguilar Marine Reserve. 

This place is called "The End of the World" and it is also one of the popular photo spots. 

The Marine Reserve is set up for the purpose of conservation of marine resources, scientific studies and education for the appreciation of our precious marine resources. Citizens are not encouraged to go visit the Cape D'Aguilar Marine Reserve. Thus, there are no public sanitary facilities including litter bins and toilets in the Cape D'Aguilar Marine Reserve. But the scenery in Cape D'Aguilar Marine Reserve is beautiful. Rather than discourage going there, it is better to add more instructions to remind visitors to take care of the environment.

After the tour, return to the bus stop No. 9. The journey takes about 3 hours.
