My parents actually had their honeymoon on Lamma island over 25 years ago so I was very excited when I got the opportunity to go. I went with some friends from uni for a little day trip over. You can leave from both Central pier or Aberdeen, but we opted for Aberdeen as it was easier to get there for... More

We were staying in Central, HK, and decided to take the ferry over to Lamma Island for the day. On the weekends, the ferries do run a bit a more than during than the week, but be advised that a lot of locals go there on the weekends. The ferry took us to the main ferry port, and we decided... More

Stayed there for a week last November after being treated to the flights by our lovely daughter who lives in mainland Hong Kong (which I didn't like too much apart from THE best pedicure ever) Lamma is just people watching paradise, it's quirky with the massive blot on the landscape power station, the sand is weird, almost like builders sand....

Lamma Island is well worth a visit. It's close enough to Hong Kong to be a comfortable journey (20-40 minutes depending on which port you choose to travel to). You can walk across the island in about an hour and a half but there's plenty to stop, see and do when you are there so plan for 2-3 hours for... More

Lamma Island is south west of HK Island. A place where famous Hong Kong movie star Chau Yung Fat grew up and lived. Ferry connecting from HK island to Lamma Island is limited. The trip takes less than an hour but coastline views are wonderful. Still remain very local (compared to Cheung Chau or Peng Chau) and very village like.... More

Absolutely beautiful island with opportunities to hike, beach, have your coffee and relax! I love the trails that run through the island offering spectacular views and a little exercise. I highly recommend visiting this island, especially when your tired of the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong and Kowloon. Mornings are serene and relaxing, as you disembark the ferry service... More

This island brings a huge contrast to the buzzing Hong Kong center. One of the best things about this place is not just the amazing nature, but also that there are very few tourists with mostly just locals having a break from the city. There is not much to do here, except have long walks and eat great seafood. What... More

Lamma island is a peaceful little island where local fishmen live. We had a nice walk around 40 minutes of the island and the view was absolutely stunning~ spent some time on the beach drinking coconut juice. many HK locals took their dogs there by ferry or smaller boat for a nice long walk and play on the beach. very...

Not a lot of tourists visit Lamma Island. It's more a local 'thing' for HK people wanting to get away from the speed of the city. However, every time I visit HK with friends we go there for an afternoon. The way is to catch a Lamma Ferry from Pier 4 (I think) and go to Yung Shue Wan. The... More
