To get to Lamma Island one needs to take a ferry from the Hong Kong terminal. It's about a half hour trip and only costs a couple USD. The island itself is small, perhaps five miles long, and fairly rugged. There are two port towns on opposite sides of the island that you can drop in on. There is a... More

if you still have a day in Hong Kong - Why not try something different by visiting Lamma Island. Enjoy the walking track for hours, explore some beaches, enjoy the fresh seafood, and local food in the middle of tracking (made of tofu), watch Kamikaze cave. Arrive at small ferry port at one site of the Lamma Island and leave... More

We had a couple of free days after doing all of the main sights in HK so decided to visit Lamma. It's easy to get to via pier 4 at Central and pretty cheap (I think we paid about $17.50 during the week). You will need coins for the ferry ticket but there is a change machine and shops at... More

A great getaway from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong and Kowloon. When we reached Lamma Island by ferry from Central, it gives me a feeling that I am in another part of the world because it is so different from Hong Kong and Kowloon. We went to the popular Yung Shue Wan and walked around the area. Stopped... More

This is not for the average tourist, I was in Hong Kong for a few weeks and we decided to take a side trip to Llama island as a bit of a vacation in a vacation. It's a small fishing village with beautiful views, aside from some cleared walking trails there isn't much to attract tourist but we loved the... More

I would recommend a visit to this island if a) you are in Hong Kong for a while or been to Hong Kong a few times and b) it is not mid summer (it is humid). We went on a cool day and had a lovely day. It was raining and we left late so we could not do a... More

This was our second trip to Lamma Island. On the first trip we found it incredibly hot and very humid and the second time was no better. It's fun to get away from Hong Kong's hustle and bustle and the ferry trip is short and cheap but the island itself is not great. Most of the shops are small and... More

Lamma island is a well worth visit, but do not expect so much of it. However if you have some time to spare and have grown tired of the city, then Lamma island would be the place to see. It offers a nice walking trail, some villages and a couple of beaches if you want to take a dip. Nothing... More

Excellent little island to leave from Central. Head on the Lamma ferry for a day-worthy getaway to get out of the city, see some beaches, a quick hike and excellent seafood. You'll love the fresh air and walk around. Excellent for people on long stays or looking for a day-break getaway. Walk to Hung She Wan beach, grab a cold... More

Took private boat to lamma island for dinner, quite a small town with nothing much to see. It's a good place for those who need a quiet and village feel people. Seafood is fresh but I don't think it's delicious and it's not cheap as well. Felt wasted to take a boat to lamma island just for dinner. The most... More
