Bride's Pool is one of the most famous idyllic spots in Plover Cove Country Park. This woodside pool is 25m in diameter and about 2m deep. Here, a magnificent waterfall sets the scene. The atmosphere is so pristine, it seems almost celestial. What also makes Bride's Pool famous is a folk legend. It is said a bride was drowned here on her way to the wedding. Tragic yet hauntingly romantic, this little tale makes your imagination run wild.

In addition to Bride's Pool, Plover Cove Country Park has many other popular scenic spots : Mirror Pool and the manmade Plover Cove Reservoir. For those who enjoy hiking or walking, the park offers Bride's Pool Nature Trail, Tai Mei Tuk Family Walk and Ping Chau Country Trail.

The sheer size of Plover Cove Country Park makes it a haven for wildlife. Here in the park, you can find most of the wild animals occurring in Hong Kong, such as Chinese Porcupine (Hystrix brachyura), Chinese Pangolin (Manis pentadactyla) and Chinese Leopard Cat (Felis bengalensis). Roosting in the woodlands are a great variety of forest birds. There have been records of Indian Cuckoo (Cuculus micropterus) and Red-winged Crested Cuckoo (Clamator coromandus) on Crooked Island and in Lai Chi Wo inside the park.

Butterflies are the most valuable ecological treasures of Plover Cove. For example, the rare Bi-spot Royal (Ancema ctesia) and Yellow Coster (Acraea issoria) were recorded in Plover Cove Country Park. The first record of Yellow Coster in Hong Kong was found in the Plover Cove Country Park. Wu Kau Tang and Lai Chi Wo inside the park are particular rich in butterflies.
