We enjoyed our visit. We particularly liked the little craft shops in and near the village on the side of the island where we landed by ferry from Aberdeen. And the beetroot and apple juice mixture from a roadside juice shop was brilliant. Our walk across to the other side of the island was good fun and relatively easy. Coming... More

We grabbed the ferry at Central Piers and went to one end of Lamma Island. We then walked the island to the other side where the Seafood Restaurants are located. We tried to get into the Restaurant that is talked about on trip advisor but it was totally booked. We were glad it was. We went a little further down... More

It's easy to get here from the Central Pier of Hong Kong, the trip takes about 35 minutes and costs ca. HKD 35 one way. I landed in the Yung Shue Wan pier on the Lamma island, then followed the Family Walk all the way through the island to Sok Kwu Wan. Measuring in Google Earth, the trip was ca.... More

I went to hike alone and it was my first time there. The routes are clearly signposted so chances of getting lost are low. Lamma Island is good for a hike and to get away from the busyness of the city

We have visited different islands in our trips to Hong Kong and this time we did Lamma island. We took the ferry to Yung Shue Wan, a small village and after wandering through the village and back (5 minutes) we picked up the well marked path to hike towards Sok Kwu Wan. We headed out of the village and passed... More

Fun hydrofoil ride to island and then we hiked from one side to the other to catch the ferry back to Hong Kong Island. The walk takes you through wooded areas, beach areas, residential neighborhoods and all the while you have wonderful scenery to keep you motivated along the path. You can't get lost and when you get to the... More

I strongly advice going to Sok Kwu Wan port by ferry in Lamma island and NOT to Yung Shue Wan its amazing, less crowded and cheaper. walking from to another is an 1 good hour 'exercise' and i think the most worthy views are around Sok Kwu Wan. and its cheaper sea food.

A group of us went over to hike, and it was nice but nothing exceptional. However, eating at a fishing village where the seafood is live in tanks is terrific. The food was excellent and the experience even better.

Really great hike that takes about 1 hour between the two villages. on the way are a beach, pavilions and small shops. Good way to see another perspective of HK life. When I stopped for a break at the pavilion I noticed a trail going down to a small beach. It was a 15 minute walk through dense forest and... More

This is a nice island to spend a day. You can go hiking lay on the beach or partake in a little swimming. I enjoyed looking at all the fish on display at the fish restaurants. Good bars and the last ferry is about 11. Best views are on the left side of the boat on the way to an... More
