This shows the small bay at Tai Po Kau. There are two things sticking out in the background, the first is a small rock promontroy which still partially exists - although the Tolo Highway has been built over a large part - ony the far tip remains and now has a nice breezy sitting out area.

You can see the Tai Po Kau station pier further to its left. The building on the far left is Island House on Yuen Chau Tsai.
