Went there on a rainy day and there are several buses that you can take to there. As I was travelling from Senado Square to Coloane Village, there were 2 buses like 21A/26A that you could take. These 2 buses go to a lot of places like Taipa Village also. Went to try the eggs tarts at Lord Stow's, and... More

I was hoping to have a scooter to explore Coloane Village and the surrounds but it was pouring - so I cabbed it. It's nothing like anything in Old Macau or Taipa. It's a fishing village that takes about 20 minutes to walk. There's interesting views of the Chinese Mainland. There's a couple of small temples that are worth a... More

A quaint old village away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Macao. Worth the trip just to sample the egg tarts at Lord Stowe.s Bakery. We ended up walking beyond Coloane around the headland and ended up at The black sand beach for lunch at Fernando.

While the village of Coloane is a quiet place to get away from the tourists and home to the famous Lord Stowe's Bakery, it is not the most beautiful place you can visit. It has four temples that see relatively few visitors compared to those on the peninsula and a nice church, but otherwise lacks real character. There are a... More

Only reason that we go to Coloane (路環 - Louwan in Cantonese) is Egg tarts from Lord Stow Cafe the original shop open here :)

The atmosphere is laid back. If you have extra time or if you want to get away from soulless casinos, go to Coloane and spend your time just walking around.

There's a lot of pretty, huge old trees, take a seat at the sea side and you will find a small shop only selling coffee.

Around 45 mins by bus from Macau mainland, Coloane is an outer island and also a leisure place to relax. Walking on the Avenida de Cinco de Outubro [十月初五馬路] where is a coast and Hengqin district, China is located at the opposite side. It is a good place to see sunset. Spend an afternoon to take a coffee there and... More

A welcome respite from the glitzy casinos, Coloane has 1 Lord Stowe bakery and two Lord Stowe cafés if you get hungry. Stroll by the Coloane port where you can see two stalls of dried fish. On the opposite end, you can sit on the benches and watch the windmills across the water. Visit a quaint and colorful church, Church... More

Lord Stow's bakery can't be missed! Eat in their little cafe round the corner. It's nice to spend an hour wandering around.
