Tuen Mun Ferry Pier (屯門碼頭) is a public pier located in the southern area of Tuen Mun, Hong Kong.

Tuen Mun Ferry Pier, Tuen Mun Pier Head, Ferry Pier Terminus (MTR Light Rail), Ocean Walk and Pierhead Garden are all part of the same complex that consists of a light rail terminus, a bus terminus, a shopping center and a private residence. It is named after its close proximity with the Tuen Mun Ferry Pier. The complex is owned by KCRC Corporation. It has operated since November, 1986.

Before the extensive improvement of the road network during late 1990s and 2000s, the traffic congestion on the overloaded Tuen Mun Road was unbearable so expansion on this road was needed. During this period, ferry service at this pier was used as an alternative for traffic to and from Central on Hong Kong Island.

Ferry transport

ervice to Tung Chung New Development Pier

The service to Tung Chung run by First Ferry was created so that people living in the Tuen Mun pier area could get to the Hong Kong International Airport easier without having to take the long bus ride.

ervice to Macau and Expansion of the Pier

In December 2003, plans for ferry service from Tuen Mun Ferry Pier to Macau was approved Fact|date=February 2007. However, in order for this service to begin, expansion of the pier was required which involved converting it from one storey to two storeys, and repainting.

The application of ferry services between Macau and Tuen Mun was rejected by authorities in Macau in September 2006, citing technical and safety concerns.
