The Revitalised Typhoon Shelter Precinct, Causeway Bay

The Revitalised Typhoon Shelter Precinct (the Precinct) is the revitalisation works of Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter. The Precinct, which is about 10 900 square metres in size and 715 metres long, is adjacent to the Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter. It is one of the promenades recommended for development under the Urban Design Study for the Wan Chai North and North Point Harbourfront Areas in 2019, and is also one of the projects under the $6.5 billion dedicated funding for harbourfront enhancement. The 18-hectare Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter provides mooring and anchorage for pleasure boats, work boats, houseboats and other types of vessels.

Following the Water Sports and Recreation Precinct (Phase 2) in Wan Chai, the Revitalised Typhoon Shelter Precinct also adopts fence-free stepped-down water edge design and provides a 90-metre-long fence-free “harbour steps” to bring the public closer to the waterbody, enabling visitors to enjoy an unobstructed view of the typhoon shelter and Victoria Harbour’s sunset.

The Precinct has beautified the 150-metre-long promenade, which was formerly known as Ah King’s Slipway, with preservation efforts of a large banyan tree nearby. More greenery, outdoor tables and chairs as well as shading facilities will be provided. A food kiosk and some booths will be set up near the banyan tree to sell a variety of local traditional snacks. Being a pet-friendly venue, members of the public are welcome to bring along their pets on leashes to the 24-hour-open Precinct.

Three iconic traditional boats “Walla-Walla” will reappear in the Precinct, allowing the public to travel through the typhoon shelter and savour the unique culture within. Guided tour will be provided in the Precinct for visitors to learn more about the background and history of the typhoon shelter. Apart from visiting the Triangular Island Goddess of Tin Hau Shrine of Peace which has been standing on the water for almost seven decades, the public can also visit the floating market, interact with boat people who live on houseboats and cast water lanterns in specific area of the typhoon shelter. Details of the activities will be announced in due course.


The Revitalised Typhoon Shelter Precinct is located between the Jardine Noonday Gun at Victoria Park Road and the Tung Lo Wan Fire Station. It can be accessed by walking for about seven minutes from the World Trade Centre through the subway to the Jardine Noonday Gun; about two minutes from the Victoria Park via the footbridge near Victoria Park Road; or about seven minutes from Exit A2 of MTR Tin Hau Station along Hing Fat Street (see map).
