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.

So much food along the way! I was hoping for a chill out weekend day hike. It turned into food coma hike. Food vendors every 200m for the lower level of the island. I started from Yong Su Wan. My word, there was seafood, street snack (waffles, some toasted 'cake', fish ball, dried fruits...). See my pictures. For those hoping... More

Take your time, walk slowly. It is a peaceful island, serene atmosphere, clean air. You must try the 建兴阿婆豆花 on the walk way from the Pier towards 洪圣爷泳滩Beach & wind turbine风车.

First time went to this Island. Though I grew up in HK but never been to this Island. Heard a lot about a lot of expat live there. The ferry ride is about 20 minutes and once you are there you will find some interesting stores and routes for exploring the Island. Not a bad idea if you want hiking... More

We visited Lamma Island for a day's trip from HK. The ferry ride was enjoyable and as we reached, it seemed as if we had reached a completely different place. To sum up the experience of the entire day: No high rise buildings, no vehicles (other than cycles), no big shop fronts - an island with little habitation, great cycling... More

an excellent escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The mountain trek is well worth the amazing views there's even a stall at the top of the track that sells drinks and snacks next to the viewing point. Both of the port villages have good seafood restaurants which specialise in the local delicacy's. The bean curd desert is... More

This place is great if you want to get away from the hectic Hong Kong life. It's green and quiet. There's a wonderful well-paved hiking trail that leads from one side to the other side of the island. Along the way you can enjoy the scenic views and if you like, have a bite to eat or drink in one... More

Not sure why Lamma gets such good reviews. After several trips to Hong Kong I finally decided to give it a try. I know you can do walks and bike rides, and whilst this may provide reprieve from the buzzing city, Lamma really does not offer much to be honest. The seafood is supposedly the best attraction but I found... More
