Tsing Lung Tau is located on the southwest coast of the New Territories in Hong Kong, between Sham Tseng and Tai Lam; west from Tsuen Wan and east of Tuen Mun. Tsing Lung Tau is west of the adjoining area of Sham Tseng, which is a little bit larger. The coast of Tsing Lung Tau once was a long beaches with one named Dragon Beach (青龍灣) and some tiny farmlands, however, it was reclaimed by the HKSAR Government for the widening of the Castle Peak Road in 2006.[citation needed]
