Around the World in 80 Days - Pierce Brosnan (1989) - Stanley Peninsula, Hong Kong

The Tankadere sinks and the shipwrecked travelers manage to row to what is supposed to be Mainland China but was actually a small rocky beach on the western edge of Stanley Peninsula. The land on the right in the top picture is Yuen Kok on Lamma island with Wailingding Island (in Chinese waters) in the far distance.

This location isn't very far from the boundary with the former Stanley Fort. Of course since 1997 it has been renamed Chek Chue Barracks (赤柱 'chek chu' is the Cantonese name for Stanley) and has the PLA stationed there.
