Wai Lingding Island, located south of Hong Kong, is an island town under the jurisdiction of the east district of Zhuhai City.

Wai Lingding Island is graceful and sublime. Lingding peak, the highest peak on the island, soars to 311.8 meters. There are luxuriant flowers and trees all year round, providing much beauty. A view from the top gives you a view of the scattered islands. And while chasing waves in a speeding boat, you can experience the wash of the waves and the crosscurrent of the sea. In a clear day on Lingding seas, the water and the sky are of one color. At dusk, a thin mist and rosy clouds are reflected in the sea, and fishing boats can be viewed in the sunset. Among the watery mist, the scenery of the Xing River sometimes emerges out of the clouds and sometimes disappears in the fog, like a mirage in a fantasy.

The island’s beaches of Lingding Bay, Tower Bay and Dadong Bay has fine sands and crystal waters, and are ideal places for fishing, swimming and surfing.
