Hoi Sham Island
The island was famous for the Hoi Sham Rock (海心石) and Fishtail Rock (魚尾石), and was believed to be a place of good Feng Shui. A Hoi Sham Temple (海心廟, also 龍母廟) was originally located on the island.
Upon reclamation of the bay of To Kwa Wan in the 1960s, the island was connected to the urban To Kwa Wan area, and was converted into Hoi Sham Park (海心公園) in 1972. The Fishtail Rock and Hoi Sham Rock were preserved and displayed in the park, which has also become a popular haunt for dating lovers. The temple has been relocated to Pak Kung Street (北拱街) in the area.
