Visit on a hot summer day was not such a bad idea but when you compare the reality found with official sites there is a huge gap. Ferries in the morning are quite frequent but afternoon (to get back) is a completely different story. If you are taking the family walk tour then return with ferry to Aberdeen and enjoy... More

Walking among small tiny shops and hippies, with no real destination but just with the purpose to explore the island. Thinking maybe of renting some house for a weekend or two to escape from the crowd of THE ISLAND. After you walk you face beaches but i recommend to pass by them (too polluted) and to reach the amazing seafood... More

Visited the island to hike. Reached there early in the morning. Had a good dimsum breakfast, but like most stuff in HK, it isn't particularly cheap. Enjoyed the hike, tho would like to try the off beaten path, to enjoy better views of the surrounding ocean.

After the madness of Kowloon and Hong Kong Kong island this is peaceful. No cars allowed on the island, bikes and walkers only. We spent a day here after catching the ferry from Kowloon. Very friendly locals and it does feel like you've stepped back in time. A walkway takes you across the island with a few shops here and... More

Only a short ferry from Hong Kong's hustle and bustle and you are in a very quiet oasis. No cars are allowed on Lamma Island so there are plenty of bicycles. Quaint shops for gifts abound with many heathy eating options. But do no miss the seafood on the waterfront.

Visited the island during midday which was probably not a good decision as the weather was scorching hot. However, was rewarded with calm and serene sceneries of the villages, the beaches and the hills. Would recommend to bring mats to sit on the beaches as there are limited public benches. Ample toilet facilities and trails are fairly easy to navigate,... More

To get to Lamma Island, you need to catch the ferry which takes about 45minutes from Central. I love the place and the big street of Sok Kwu Wan is mainly great seafood restaurants The island has had a reputation for alternative lifestyles, hippies, and a relaxed attitude, is peaceful and tranquil with an abundance of natural scenery. The trail... More

Many things to try on this island. Something to suit everyone from Tai O village to the Big Buddha. A good transport system is in place. I went by ferry and came back by MTR.
