Tai Peng (Chinese: 大坪; literally: "big plateau") is a small residential village to the east of Yung Shue Wan on Lamma Island, Hong Kong, on the hill directly north above the Yung Shue Long (榕樹塱) valley.

Tai Peng is split between a main village, Tai Peng Kau Tsuen (大坪舊村; "old village"), and Tai Peng San Tsuen (大坪新村; "new village").

Features[edit]

Tai Peng San Tsuen mainly comprises residential housing. A number of traditional stone houses are still in use in Tai Peng Kau Tsuen, of which some are reputed to be more than 300 years old. Facilities include a village hall, a small shrine, a community garden, and public toilets. There was a small grocery shop called Regent Stores, which closed down in December 2015.
