Yan Chau Tong Marine Park is located on the northeast coast of Plover Cove Country Park, and is part of the Northeast New Territories Sedimentary Rock Region of Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark. The total sea area of this Marine Park is about 680 ha and is made up of two portions. The 1st portion at Yan Chau Tong (Double Haven) is bounded by the water mark along the coastline of the mainland in the west including Sam A Tsuen and that of Double Island in the east. The 2nd portion is located next to Lai Chi Wo and bounded by the line linking Chung Wan Tsui and the northern tip of Kau Lo Tau.

Mangroves and seagrass bed, acting as nursery grounds for marine lives, are the two important ecological habitats in Yan Chau Tong Marine Park. The beautiful scenery created by the wide variety of landforms, such as bays, projecting headlands, peninsulas, rock cliffs, sand pits, mudflat and rocky shores, has earned the Marine Park the name of “Little Guilin of Hong Kong”.

In addition to roaming Yan Chau Tong Marine Park by self-arranged boats, visitors can also visit Sam A Tsuen and Lai Chi Wo via Double Haven Country Trail.
