Relaxing day-off from busy Honkong. Wonderful hiking sites! Must visit if you are in Hongkong. Easy to get from HK by ferry

Lamma Island is accessible by a short 20+ min ferry ride from HK Island. Ferries depart regularly weekends and calls at 2 piers on the island. I went ashore at Sok Kwu Wan pier. Turn right at the pier to pass through an strip of land dotted with sea-food restaurants and tid-bits shops. At the end is a temple that... More

A great place to get away from it all and enjoy fresh fish meals. Very different form Hong Kong. you can take a ferry from either end of the island and walk between them.

I got a ferry to the north of the island at about 9am, and it was worth going early since there were hardly any people when I arrived. I planned to walk to the other ferry terminal and wasn't disappointed. It's a fairly easy hike - with some steep inclines - and should take between 1-2 hours - longer if... More

Had a lovely day trekking Lamma Island (though did not get to see any Llamas which was disappointing ha ha ha.. err okay not funny). Heading across the island between Yung Shue Wan and Hung Shing Ye Beach villages was an easyish trek, even for an overweight and unfit person. The second portion of the trek to Tung O was... More

Lamma Island is a short ferry ride away from Central. I was blown away when I arrived. I did not expect such a nice little seaside town and beautiful beach so close to central! The island has a great walking trail that winds up the side of a hill along the beach making its way to the otherside of the... More

We went there on Xmas day. We had a pleasant time hiking from one pier to another pier. Good view from the hill seeing the sea. Fresher air than in the town. We had seafood lunch after hiking. friendly restaurant with seafood reasonably priced. Lamma Island is a great family outing spot! :)

It is a little island west of hk island. Very unique as there are no cars and ppl travel between villages with little tractors and bikes There is a walking trail that connects the two main villages with ferry piers. Just be careful with the sok kwu wan terminal as the ferries don't come as frequent as the other village.... More

Amazing that this pedestrians-only island is just a short ferry ride from central Hong Kong. We took the ferry over from Central, walked across the island sipping beers and enjoying the views, and then took the ferry back. Not very strenuous hiking or rugged location, but a lovely place to get outdoors and take a walk.
