Reaching Po Toi is a fairly straight forward proposition with daily ferries running from 2 locations throughout the week. From Aberdeen Pier, there is a return kaito service which operates on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays & public holidays and takes approximately one hour each way. Alternatively, on weekends and public holidays there is a shorter kaito service from the Stanley Blake Pier. The ferry trip flies by and in no time Po Toi comes into view. The kaito alights at a small pier next to the islands’ only village. It’s important to know that here lie the only amenities, so load up on fluids before venturing elsewhere and there is no harm in taking a short stroll across to the beautifully situated Tin Hau temple nearby too.
Back in the village having worked up an appetite, Ming Kee Seafood on the main beach is the primary port of call to grab a feast. Although a handful of smaller restaurants further back into the village are also worth checking out.
In summary, Po Toi is a fantastic spot for a relaxing day trip, or cute camping option. It’s charming fishing village and stunning headland walks will live long in the memory for those who make voyage south.
