Tin Hau (Chinese: 天后) is an area in Wan Chai District, on the north side of Hong Kong Island, in Hong Kong.

Tin Hau is not a formalised district in Hong Kong, but rather the colloquial name given to an area that lies on the border of Causeway Bay and North Point. The name refers to the area immediately surrounding Tin Hau Station of the MTR, so named due to its proximity to the Causeway Bay Tin Hau Temple.

The term "Tin Hau" is also used to describe the location of places like Queen's College (beside Tin Hau MTR Station) and the Central Library and the Causeway Bay Sports Ground which is located in the Wan Chai District. Several government offices and facilities such as Causeway Bay Market are located there.
