Hebao Island (Chinese: [1] Hebao Dao,[2] literally "Purse Island", variants: Bullock Horn,[3]Ho-pao,[4]Ho-pao Tao,[5]Kukok Island,[6]Kukok Ngao Kok,[7]Niu-chiao-shan[8] and Niu-chio Tao[9]) is a resort island off the southern coast of Guangdong province in the People's Republic of China. Located in the South China Sea, it is approximately 100 kilometers West-Southwest of Hong Kong.

Administratively, this picturesque, sub-tropical island belongs to the prefecture-level city of Zhuhai, and so may be considered part of the so-called Chinese Riviera. It has a total area of 13 square kilometers, and its coast consists mainly of beaches,[10] while the interior includes sub-tropical forest.[11]

Four-mile long Great South beach (Chinese: ) is the longest on the island.[12]
