Cheung Tsui (Tai Long Tsui)

About The Site

Cheung Tsui is the easternmost cape of Hong Kong, situated at the outermost tip of the spur north of Tai Long Wan and surrounded by sea on three sides. Cheung Tsui is also named Tai Long Tsui and is a well-known hiking spot for advanced hikers. On the north of Cheung Tsui, sits a smaller cape named Tuen Tsui (lit. “short cape”), which corresponds to Cheung Tsui (lit. “long cape”).

The underwater environment of Cheung Tsui presents a diversity of reliefs and landforms – including rocky reefs, platforms, underwater hills, underwater caves, sandy-rocky bottoms and sandy-silty bottoms. Biodiversity in Cheung Tsui is impressive. In the right season, divers may find it common to record over 10 species of nudibranchs and flatworms in one day, along with sea apples, sea fans and other marine organisms. Common fishes found here include butterflyfishes, shoals of Bronze sweepers, wrasses, hawkfishes, and lionfishes. Rarer reef fishes such as Pennant coralfish, Goldlined spinefoot, Yellow boxfish, rare wrasses and Redcoats may also be spotted at this site.

The dive spot of Cheung Tsui can reach 22 m at its deepest. Considering the depth and complex relief, the dive site is not recommended for beginner divers. In addition, the lack of natural barriers, renders the site not suitable for diving on windy days.
