Following the recommendations of fellow travellers on tripadvisor, we did kind of a round-trip, starting with the ferry from Central (Pier 4) to Yung Shue Wan and walking from there to Sok Kwu Wan. The walk is pleasant and just a bit hilly, I guess it will be about 300m going up and down again total. Lamma is still noexception... More

On my second visit to Hong Kong stayed on Lamma for a week much more relaxed than the big island. Whilst there I walked the family trail from Yung Shue to Sok Kwu but then carried on to Mo Tat Wan beach then past old derelict villages and overgrown banana plantations where a Chinese Cobra slid in front of me...

I arrived a day in advance of a conference so I could start beating the jet lag and met up with some friends - we decided a trip to Lamma Island would be a great way to get some exposure to daylight and activity without big crowds. We went on a weekday, so it was lovely and quiet. We took... More

Take the ferry out to Lamma Island if you find the Hong Kong crowds wearing you down. The ferry takes a little over 30 minutes and provides great views and is interesting if you are able to cruise by an anchored container ship offloading to barges and coasters. I started at Yung Shue Wan - a pretty Mediterranean style village... More

Been to Hong Kong for many times. The first time to lamma island. Fantastic place! Very authentic village place, the cafes were one of the best place to rest our legs. Operated by the owners, fusion foods, unique drinks of their own. Having seafood at the evening was good too. But more pricey compare to cheng Zhou. Read my other... More

Like many other “islands” in Hong Kong, Lamma Island has great seaview, fresh air, peaceful environment. You may go swimming at the beach, enjoy seafood at the restaurant, go hiking on a sunny day etc

Nice way to experience HK other than the usual areas... Arrived at the nearer ferry terminal, took a 1.5 hr slow stroll to the other ferry terminal, had seafood feast at Rainbow (a little pricier than other seafood places) then took Rainbow's free shuttle back to HK...

There are many reasons to take this excursion. The island is a very scenic & peaceful place. Lots of places to eat & shop. A nice place to hike or stroll. Very easy to get to via the ferry. Once there everything is on-foot as there are no vehicles. It's is 180 degrees different from the hustle of the urban... More

Ferry from the ferry port takes 20 Minutes. There are plenty of places to eat and drink. The main street has plenty of supermarkets and gift shops. There is a hiking trail to the other side of the island and a great beach,
