Located on the northeastern shore of Plover Cove Country Park, Yan Chau Tong was designated as a marine park in the 1990s.  The unspoiled habitat of the area, together with clear water, has become a well-known arcadia in the territory.  Situated at the headland of Yan Chau Tong, Sai Lau Kong offers a panorama of the calm and turquoise bay, and the landforms referred to as the six treasures of Double Haven – the imperial jade seal, brush-holder, brush, ink stone, paper, and umbrella of the king.
Half a century ago, Sai Lau Kong used to be a thriving fishing village with over one hundred villagers, but with the decline of the fishing industry plus its remote location, only an abandoned pier, some old houses, and a derelict fishermen’s children school are left to bear witness to the changing times.  
To reach Sai Lau Kong, some choose to go from Wu Kau Tang through Sam A Tsuen along the coast.  This route passes through well-shaded paths with gnarled roots of old trees, and a coast full of twists and turns with crystal-clear waters.  Given the difficult terrain and the long distance, visitors are recommended to bring along enough drinks and food.
