Junk Harbour - Mui Wo (Silvermine Bay)

Also Silvermine Bay on Lamma Island was not a real junk harbour and there is no typhoon shelter, but at Silvermine Beach and at the mouth of the Silver river and the mud flats around you could see lots of Junks and sampans, which today have totally disappeared.
