Lei Yue Mun's fishing heritage dates back some 150 years. Alfresco dining came in the 1960s and many restaurants line the waterfront today, where you can pick the seafood from the tanks outside and the kitchen will cook it for you. Urban development has approached and now the village is only a short walk from the MTR.
With its heritage as a fishing village, a temple dedicated to Tin Hau is not surprising. She is the goddess of the sea and this one has over 200 years of history.
Victoria Harbour ends here and 2 defense batteries were built on either side of the harbour to defend this narrow entry. The British were concerned Hong Kong could be invaded by competing empires such as Russia, and built Devil's Peak battery above this village in the 19th century.
