I took the ~ 30 minute ferry ride from Hong Kong Central Pier #4 to Lamma Island. Once you get off the dock there are numerous seafood restaurants and bars to grab a bite to eat. There is a path around the island that is about 4km and will take from Yung Shue Wan to the ferry on the other... More

It took us about 40 minutes to get there from Island Shangri La hotel. I would recommend that you hike if the weather permits - and if you do, bring your towel and swim suit! The beach is beautiful and you can find open showers as well. It was too chilly when we went in Feb, but when I go... More

It takes just over half an hour to get to this island from the mainland, but it feels like you've crossed a border. This island has no motorised vehicles and can be walked around in a day. There are 2 main walking paths, and be prepared to spend an afternoon walking just one of them. Stopping by the beaches, remnants... More

Figuring out which Ferry to take is crucial, but its only 17HKD to get from Aberdeen to Lamma. Or you can go from Central Piers. But you can spend 2-4 hours hiking, you can pick strenuous hikes, or like me, at 62 yrs young, I did the 2-3 hour leisurely walk from one village to the next. There are plenty... More

You can access by ferry from Central Station. You should go only if you are ready to walk on the trail (about 7 km between the ferry stops). Although there is a coal thermoeletric plant on the island, nature is still well preserved and provides many beautiful landscapes.

It is a very good hike, bring along towel and swim suit. The beach is beautiful with free changing rooms and open shower area. The water is around 5m visibility. There were some debris on the surface of the sea, but it seems like seaweeds. water was cold but the weather was beautiful. The hike is very easy, I rather... More

As I am often in Hong Kong for short periods, decided to spend my 3 days on Lamma Island. Well worth the 30 minute ferry from Central. Cost is either 16 or 22 HKD depending upon the time. The island reminds me quite a lot of the feel of Malta. There is basically only 2 roads, no cars, only foot... More

For abotu $1 US we took the ferry from Central here. Twenty-five minutes we arrived at a place away from the hustle of Hong Kong. The main attraction (for us) was a less than half mile main street, with overpriced seafood restaurants and shops. No cars are allowed but there were small motarized vehicles delivering products that pushed you out... More

What can I say? This island is my home for past 20 years. No cars, laid back attitude of the residents, and the island people knows everyone by face if not by name. We got everything we need in this island. Great restaurants, great food, great community. I highly recommend this place to visit when you're in Hong Kong.

A 30 minute boat ride from Pier 4, Central, gets you to Yung Shue Wan on Lamma Island. This is the largest settlement on the Island but it still has some of the feel of a small fishing village. Come here for walking and eating... the seafood restaurants are well known. On his TV show "48hr Layover", chef Anthony Bourdain... More
