Have been going Lamma for years. The bad news is that the fab Roast Pigeon restaurant up on the hill (near the beach) is no longer there: the good news is that there are more and more interesting little shops opening up..... Not just veg stalls and beachwear but trendy little Japanese print bags in all shapes and sizes, some... More

Have been to Hong Kong many times, but this was our first trip to Lamma. Ferry from Central Piers takes about 30 mins & you get great Victoria Harbour views on the way there & back. We strolled through the shorefront where there are many restaurants & shops, it has a couple of Organic/Health food shops selling foods & drinks.... More

This is worth a visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of HK. It's cheap to get the ferry from near central Hong Kong and takes about 25 mins to reach. The village is small, quaint and very quiet. Lots of restaurants, quite a hippy relaxed vibe. You can reach the small but pleasant beach by walking for... More

Lamma Island is a great place to explore as a nice change of atmosphere and scenery if you would like to enjoy some peace and tranquility - as compared to the crowded streets of Mongkok and Central. A great way to explore Lamma Island will be to take a ferry from Central Pier to Sok Kwu Wan, and from Sok... More

We loved this hike. The hike climbs up over the ridge of the island, but nothing too tough. The sections that go through the villages are interesting, and the small temple is quaint. The walk is paved and very well marked. The ferry was easy to catch from Central pier 4.

Went over here on our last full day in HK for lunch. Ferry over is very easy and quick. You get off the boat and walk through the seaside town which is built right against the protected bay. Lined with seafood restaurants with fresh food. Had a lovely meal and some beers, and watched the world go by. Recommended for... More

This is a great island to travel to away from the busy areas of Hong Kong. There are really two sides to the island and there are two ferries that travel there, so make sure you catch the right ferry for the area you want to visit. If not then it's an east 90 minute walk to the other side.... More

Went there for one day to leave the bussy Hong Kong. It was very hot so we decided to go to the beach and took a ferry from HK to the southern part of the island. After a 45 min hike we spent the rest of the day on a beautiful beach. If youre not going for a swim than... More

I thoroughly enjoyed walking across the island as a break from all the shopping in HK. I took the ferry to Yung Shu Wan and walked to the other side of the island to catch a ferry out. The walk is mostly paved stones or concrete so doable on wheels without steps. It is a bit hilly so can be... More

It s a nice day out from the busy centre of HK. The ferry trip is less than 30min.. It was a humid day that we went, so we didn't hike too far - we just explored the town centre and had a surprisingly tasty lunch at the Water Front restaurant - it's down a service path behind shops on... More
