Major attractions
Shalowan is located in north-west Lantau and nestles in a valley surrounded by verdant hills. The Pearl River Estuary is as the crow’s flies with the Hong Kong International Airport a stone’s throw away. Eponymously, the village is named for its sandy beaches and molluscs, both things of the past. Still this former farming and fishing village retains its charming stone wall and gate near the entrance to the old settlement, the ancient giant camphor trees on the hill, the “fairy traces” and Nei Sha Stream. Its traditional Pa Kong Temple is home to the Chinese deities Hung Shing and Tin Hau, both still very revered today. Together they protect the harbour and this Qing dynasty village.
