Kat O is located to the west of Mirs Bay, adjacent to the border of Sha Tau Kok. It is the northernmost island in Hong Kong, and its southeast is Crescent Island and Wong Wan Chau. Because it is located in the Mirs Bay with high waves and high winds, its bay can be used as a natural haven for fishing boats, hence the name Kat O, which means auspicious; on the other hand, because the island is curved, its English name is also called Crooked Island (meaning Kat O). The highest point on the island is Kai Kung Leng, which is 122 meters high in the east of the island, followed by Wong Fong Shan, Chung Wan Peak, Ko Pang Teng, Ko Tei Teng and Wong Kok Teng.
There are no barrier-free facilities on Kat O, but the design of the local passage is quite wide, which is generally suitable for wheelchair users. There is a ramp leading to Tin Hau Temple, but because there are no barrier-free facilities on the island (such as accessible toilets, etc.), wheelchair users are not recommended to go alone.
