Tai Mei Tuk is a popular recreation area around the Plover Cove Reservoir and Dam on the north side of the Tolo Harbour. This is hub and haven for outdoor activities making it a popular place for Hongkongers eager to spend time away from the chaos of the city on weekends and public holidays.

At Tai Mei Tuk is there are variety hikes that venture in and around the Plover Cove Reservoir and Country Park including the very popular Bride's Pool area. Visitors can also fly kites, rent a variety of boats and kayaks to use in the sea and cycle across the reservoir dam.

There are large designated BBQ areas, a handful of restaurants and couple of bars along the main road at the reservoir and dam turnoff. A handful of bike rental shops are found along this road as well. There is a youth hostel near the main Water Sport Centre but nothing else in the form of overnight accommodations in the area.

A popular way to arrive at Tai Mei Tuk is by way of the popular bike trail which starts in Tai Wai, passing Shatin, Science Park, Tai Po Waterfront and finally arriving in Tai Mei Tuk. Otherwise, day visitors can use of Minibus 20C (every 60-90 min), 75K (every 10-30 min) from the Tai Po Market MTR Station. There is also 275R on Sundays (10-20 min) going all the way out to Bridal Pool. These buses depart at the large bus terminus just outside the Tai Po Market MTR Station. Plenty of taxis at the MTR Station as well if you want a faster trip out to Tai Mei Tuk.

Tai Mei Tuk, a small village at the eastern tip of Tai Po, is a popular destination for picnic and outdoor activities. It is also an important stop at Hong Kong's major cycling path. Even if sports is not the reason of visit, a stroll around Plover Cove Reservoir is still enjoyable. Parking can be a challenge while public transport is not really convenient.

Tai Mei Tuk is a little out of the way,, but still well served by public transport. It's great for biking tours - you can rent bikes in lots of stands across the street from the main parking lot. Bike along the reservoir dam and watch locals flying kites, sometimes pretty elaborate kites doing pretty spectatular manouevres. After biking and/or hiking, you can opt to have a BBQ in one or two BBQ areas. There is a stand at which you can buy meat, sausages and the most essential BBQ ustensils. On a sunny day, sunset is particularly nice. This is a great place for a day out with the kids. It also appears that on many Sunday mornings, the main parking lot is a gathering place for owners of luxury cars, and is filling up with Ferraris, Lamborghinis , Aston Martins and the like.....

Was there a couple of weeks with my kids n got ripped off by a bike rental shop called WAN WAH. Avoid going to this shop, i had to rush n booked a bike since my 4 yrs old princess was cranky n wanted the bike asap. Thus i booked from the closest shop to the bus terminal. What i paid for one hour was the price of daily. They have printed the price in chinese not in english. Later when i asked her why u charged me more she said 'shut up n go'. Stay vigilant to all my fellow travellers

At the end of a cycling route that started at Shatin Park, which is minutes from Shatin MTR, Tai Mei Tuk is a village that has a bus terminal, bicycle rental shops, restaurants and a yacht club. It is also 5 minutes from Plover Cove reservoir which is a pleasant rest stop after about 2.5-3 hours of leisurely cycling. The cycling route is flat and easy, not ON road, and passing by housing estates, parks and industry (factories like Lee Kum Kee, etc making foods provided delicious smells along the way). An off the beaten track experience that is a refreshing change from shopping malls and busy city.

We returned the rental bikes (hired at Shatin Park) at Tai Mei Tuk instead of cycling back to Shatin and had lunch at a local Tai Mei Tuk restaurant serving Thai food. Then caught a bus that took us to an MTR for our return to Hong Kong island.

Bikes of different sizes available for hire at Shatin Park and all well pmaintained.

Having lived in taipo for a while now I love going to tei Mei tuk and take regular bike rides and jog in the area as the cycle paths are excellent plus you can go across the aquaduct. There are also plenty of BBQ areas and places to hire bikes from if not bringing your own. The restaurants are also worth trying if you don't fancy the BBQ. It's classed as the countryside which is true as you won't see the usual hk skyrise apartments and buildings here but don't expect it to be really quiet as on the weekends it can get very busy and cycle paths will be busier, there are also medics who go around on bikes tending to anyone who may have fell off and be injured. You will get some great views of the mountains and the water plus there is the big Buddha which I have been told is the largest structure built of the female version.

Nice and readily accessible place. Best to go there one hour before sunset and on a fine day with some clouds, but not a very cloudy day, in order to see the sun when it sets. See some nice photos in Album 163: picasaweb.google.com/yipjcs88pica

This is a popular place with locals who come to barbecue, ride a bike or row a boat. Nice sea view.
Cycling on the reservoir dam is enjoyable.
