Jin Island

Bell Shaped Arch

Columnar joints in Jin Island are similar to those in High Island but different in shape probably because the cooling environment of the rock was different. In the south of Jin Island, the headland was detached from the rock mass due to extended wave impact, forming a stack known as " Kam Chung Ngam". The 30m high Bellshaped arch is rated as the most beautiful of it s kind in Hong Kong. Tiu Chung Arch has the resemblance of a bell, hence the name.
