QEF Plant Study Site No. 2 - Pui O Beach

The second trail chosen as a Quality Education Fund Plant Study Trail is the Pui O Beach on the southern side of Lantau Island. It is one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Hong Kong and a gazetted bathing beach.

Sandy beaches represent a harsh habitat that is inhabited by plants adapted to xerophytic intertidal conditions. So far, more than 100 species of vascular plants are found on Pui O Beach.

A continuous flash image of the vegetation along the beach was developed and uploaded on this website. Plants appearing in the flash images are marked with sensitive points which, when hit, would provide the names of the corresponding plants. Students and tourists are invited to use this trail as a virtual field trip or virtual ecotour and identify and learn the profiles of the plants there.

Relevant old photos and literary works are also kept on our website to enrich your enjoyment of this Trail. Should you wish to donate the image of any such photos and know of information on relevant works concerning Pui O Beach, kindly forward them to us at < >.

You are highly recommended to actually visit Pui O Beach. With its clear water and fine sand, a field study or leisure walk along the Beach can be very enjoyable. It is easily accessible by bus No. 3 and 3M at Tung Chung MTR Station or No. 1, 2, 3, 3M, 4, or 7P at Mui Wo Ferry Pier, and by car or taxi.
