It's a old fisherman's village small and easy to see. Have a small church near some restaurants that you can eat and have a store that is well know for their egg tarts. If you have time take a trip there, you don t lose much time over there. Very calm, and quiet.

It's not convenient to get here by public transportation. I took bus 26/21A from A-Ma Temple to Coloane, and it took me about 40 mins & MOP$5/ per person. It's a quiet and peaceful place with fewer tourists and bus, cars, and people. There are also few Portuguese foods and Lord Stow's Bakery here, so it could take you a... More

This was a $15 AUD trip from town. First stop bakery, which was lovely and then walk along the waterfront. Some interesting old buildings and lots of alley ways to explore before a taxi back into town.

Small fishing village with a lot of charm. Some small shops were we purchased a few items to bring home. Not a lot of tourists when we were there as most stay up towards central Macau. Lord Stowes bakery and cafe are there which are fabulous and not to be missed!

A short taxi ride from the Cotai Strip, this is almost an original village! Nice seafront walk, couple of shops by the pier selling dried fish. Three temples of which the Tin Hau temple is one of the best you will see in Macau and Hong Kong. A tranquil break from the manic pace of the casinos.

Coloane is still a small, traditional village on the southern-most island of the Macau chain. It is well-worth a visit. You need to walk along the water-side to see the old square and small Portuguese colonial church. The main Lord Stow bakery is here, so you MUST buy some of their excellent tarts. There are also some small cafe's and... More

A charming and interesting place to spend away from the hustle and bustle of the casino Meccas which in their own right are another world of attractions. Coloane is a former sleepy fishing village and renown for the starting point of the famous Lord Stows tarts. Architecture vernacular varies from corrugated iron external cladding to Portugese themes and a mixture... More

Very different from hustle bustle and glittering buildings of macau. An Portuguese era fishing village, cobbled streets. Nice place to spend 2-3 hours.

I was a crazy Korean Drama Fanatic and was searching for the little church where the lead characters, Joo Ji Hoon and Yoon Eun Hye got married in the drama "Goong (2006)". Found it there together with the original Lord Stow's bakery and Cafe (not the one near the roundabout). You would be able to enjoy a quiet stroll near... More
