Cheung Chau (lit. "Long Island") is a small island 10 km southwest of Hong Kong Island. It has been inhabited for longer than most other places in the territory of Hong Kong, with a population of about 30,000 up to 2006. Administratively, it is part of the Islands District.

The island is dumbbell-shaped, with hills at the northern and southern ends and the settlements concentrated in between.
