From Wikipedia –
A tombolo, from the Italian tombolo, derived from the Latin tumulus, meaning ‘mound’, and sometimes translated as ayre, is a deposition landform in which an island is attached to the mainland by a narrow piece of land such as a spit or bar. Once attached, the island is then known as a tied island. Several islands tied together by bars which rise above the water level are called a tombolo cluster. Two or more tombolos may form an enclosure (called a lagoon) that can eventually fill with sediment. A tombolo may be considered to be a type of isthmus.
I found this tombolo connecting the Ma Shi Chau Nature Trail and Sam Mun Tsai in Hong Kong. Obviously, I thought, the best way to take a picture of the tombolo would be to fly a drone over it! Flying over the tombolo, I got a pretty good bird’s eye view of it. That’s why, I’d highly recommend you check out my aerial photography albums.
And here’s the video of the area.
Tombolo Connecting Ap Lei Chau & Ap Lei Pai
Recently, I discovered another tombolo in Hong Kong. The tombolo that connects Ap Lei Chau to Ap Lei Pai.
Pretty cool, right.
