This island brings a huge contrast to the buzzing Hong Kong center. One of the best things about this place is not just the amazing nature, but also that there are very few tourists with mostly just locals having a break from the city. There is not much to do here, except have long walks and eat great seafood. What... More

Lamma island is a peaceful little island where local fishmen live. We had a nice walk around 40 minutes of the island and the view was absolutely stunning~ spent some time on the beach drinking coconut juice. many HK locals took their dogs there by ferry or smaller boat for a nice long walk and play on the beach. very...

Not a lot of tourists visit Lamma Island. It's more a local 'thing' for HK people wanting to get away from the speed of the city. However, every time I visit HK with friends we go there for an afternoon. The way is to catch a Lamma Ferry from Pier 4 (I think) and go to Yung Shue Wan. The... More

After reading the reviews - one entitled "I really tried to enjoy this island" I went with lower expectations and was pleasantly surprised. This is only a 30 minute trip from the Hong Kong terminals and cost $34 Hong Kong round trip - pretty reasonable. We spent an entire afternoon on the island (no big cars which was a pleasant... More

Lamma island is a great place to hike around. It was a path that allows you to see some of the most speculate views. My husband, two friends and myself set out on our four walk up and down hills on a very hot day. Rule #1 always check the weather in the summer in Hong Kong. With humidity We... More

This place is something of a local favorite to get away to the beach for a day, but for the tourist there is not much to see. It sort of resembles a smaller, shabbier Avalon like Catalina in California. But ferry service is very cheap and the schedules frequent. The biggest attraction seems to be the dozens of restaurants on... More

I got away from my group of friends for a day and decided to go to Lamma Island. I got to the harbor to catch a ferry to the island, You will have to decide which of the 2 docks you will like to start your journey. I decided to start from Yung Shue Wan since I wanted to get... More

I stayed at a friend's house on Lamma Island with two other friends. All three of us loved our time spent on the island. First, the laid back ambiance was perfect for us working professionals looking for a break from busy corporate life. Second, I love the view of the sunset from the beach side resto-bars. Third, the line of... More

I spent a couple of weeks in HK with my boyfriend and this was the highlight of HongKong! I was with my boyfriend and as he'd been before he put himself in charge of ferries. We were supposed to get the star ferry and we slowly saw the HK skyline dissapearing into the fog... 30 minutes and 5 sick bags... More
