Double Haven (Yan Chau Tong) rests on the northeastern shore of Plover Cove Country Park. The Chinese name Yan Chau Tong is probably inspired by an interesting looking islet which takes the shape of a stone seal. To conserve the wildlife and natural features of this lovely area, Double Haven was designated a marine park in 1996.
Double Haven is a idyllic arcadia embraced by uplands. It owes its celestial tranquil setting to the surrounding hills. Well shielded on four sides from the open sea, it is relatively unaffected by the southeast summer monsoon and northwest winter monsoon. The air is a little dryer than other parts of Hong Kong and there is seldom heavy rain. Although a whole network of small streams flow into Double Haven, they never cause any widespread flooding. Bestowed with such supreme qualities, it is no surprise that Double Haven astonishes every first-time visitor with her stunning beauty. That unique serene mood is simply unimaginable in bustling Hong Kong.
The hexagonal rock columns, widely exposed in Sai Kung, are Hong Kong’s most iconic and globally rare geoheritage. Sai Kung is characterised by long meandering coastlines and numerous islands. With no natural barriers to offer protection, the east-facing areas meeting the sea fall victim to persistent wind and wave erosion. The weathered outer layer of rock distributed in these areas is denuded. On the islands, the harsh environment led to sparse vegetation coverage. In this setting, the hexagonal rock columns are typically exposed in their true glory. Jin Island, Fa Shan on High Island, the Ung Kong Group and the Ninepin Group are core distribution zones of hexagonal rock columns in Hong Kong. The shores are rimmed with precipitous cliffs, and rock columns are well exposed with their distinct hexagonal form. Visitors can see a wide range of coastal erosion landforms and breath-taking vistas.
