General’s Rock is a landmark of Tai O. At 10 m tall, it stands at the seacliff of the north western part of Tiger Hill in Lantau, facing Lingding Yang. The shape of the rock reminds visitors of a strong and valiant general resting. Legend has it that a general accidentally fell of the cliff and his pants came off. Before he could pull them back, he was punished by the heavenly court and was turned into a rock. There is a natural arch at the leg part of the rock, which is formed by prolonged coastal erosion. Visitors taking the Tai O Boat excursion will be able to look at the General’s Rock up close.
