Coloane Pier

English: Coloane Pier, Portuguese: Ponte Cais De Coloane, Traditional: 路環碼頭

The Coloane Pier (Ponte Cais De Coloane) is Coloane’s historic pier, constructed in the 1960s to accommodate the transportation of fish and other goods coming in and out of the country.

It was also pivotal back then since ferries were the only means one could get to Coloane before the Governor Nobre de Carvalho Bridge was constructed in 1974.

Villagers in neighbouring regions and islands would take ferries to and from this point and also use it to moor their boats. However, passenger ferry services were halted during the early 1980s, and since then, the pier has functioned as a mooring place for sea transport from Hengqin whenever they came to the country to sell goods.

Coloane Pier is a testament to a long and colourful history. It features a trestle bridge, a sloped quay, and a covered corridor. The corridor is constructed independently, designed with an arched entrance, parapets, protruded eaves, and a symmetrical façade, all in an art-deco style. It’s still used today as a point of entry, though customs officials man the entrance and exits of passengers from Zhuhai and mainland China. It’s common to see small boats at the pier, though less frequent, with more passengers preferring to travel by land.

Make your way to the lovely Coloane Village from here; this quaint seaside destination is brimming with culture and history. Step back in time as you walk through the cobblestone streets and soak up the sights of heritage buildings. Don’t forget to try the famous egg tarts you can find here.

Other notable attractions in Coloane Village include colonial churches, open-air coffee shops, and much more.

Coloane Pier is worth visiting for a few minutes while exploring this area.
