Kiu Tsui Country Park in Port Shelter of Sai Kung occupies an area of 100 hectares. Designated in 1979, it is the smallest island country park in Hong Kong. In addition to the largest Sharp Island (Kiu Tsui), the park has 7 other outlying islands within its boundaries : Kiu Tau, Pak Sha Chau, Tai Tsan Chau, Siu Tsan Chau, Cham Tau Chau, Yau Lung Kok and Tuen Tau Chau. The coasts of these islands are favourite angling points, while Hap Mun Bay on Sharp Island is a popular beach that attracts many visitors in summer. To see these islands, take a kaido at the Sai Kung Market ferry pier.
Birds occurring on these islands are Little Green Heron (Butorides striatus), White-bellied Sea Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster), Indian Cuckoo (Cuculus micropterus), Koel (Eudynamys scolopacea), Great Coucal (Centropus sinensis), Red-vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus aurigaster), Common Tailorbird (Orthotomus sutorius), Great Tit (Parus major), Black-necked Starling (Sturnus nigricollis), Crested Myna (Acridotheres cristatellus), Black Drongo (Dicrurus macrocercus), Magpie (Pica pica) and Jungle Crow (Corvus macrorhynchos). Other wild animals are rare, with only occasional sightings of the Wild Boar (Sus scrofa).
