Visit this island of you want to experience another aspect of Hong Kong. Actually, on this island you'll find more Westerners than hong kong locals. On the other side of the island there is a small clean beach and the way to beach from the jetty is really nice, natural and green. You'll definitely like the way if you are... More

Lamma Island is just 20-30 minutes of ferry ride away from Hong Kong. It has many villages connected with each other via narrow pavements. It is a car free island. People mainly commute by bicycle or by foot. You can rent a bicycle in one of the villages. We could not rent one as we arrived late. So we just... More

If you want to take a break from the bustle of Hong Kong, this is your place. Just twenty minutes by ferry and you are transported to a quiet Island. Try the seafood (andys seafood), roast pigeon, ah por tau foo far etc. if you fancy a walk you can trek around the leafy paths.

Lamma Island is still very crowded in the weekends. A lot of locals and tourists go there for the beach. But you can have a nice walk there, you have some nice fish restaurants. The rainbow restaurant has it's own ferry service, so when you make sure to end your walk at the Sok Kwu Wan ferry terminal, you can... More

We loved our day trip to this island and hike. It is an easy and cheap ferry ride over and nice view of the harbour coming in and out. The hiking is easy with most of it a paved pathway. Cute little waterfront restaurants in both villages on either side of the pathway. Doesn't matter which way you go, the... More

A wonderful place to escape the hustle and bustle of the rest of Hong Kong. We caught the ferry from Pier 4 to Lamma Island but unfortunately did not have time to walk from one end to the other as many people suggest. We only had time to have a little wander through the village and then have lunch at... More

Left from Central Pier 4 and headed to Sok Kwu Wan (just under HKD 30). Took around 30mins on a very bumpy ferry ride. Sok Kwu Wan has a number of seafood restaurants lining the pier when you arrive, the most famous/popular one is the Rainbow Seafood Restaurant. Didn't try it as it was still morning and wanted to do... More
