We arrived early (8:30am on a Saturday) and found there to be a pier, a street full of mainly restaurants and at the end of a two minute walk- a Tin Hau temple with a huge Oar Fish on display. There was little else there but it was scenic nonetheless because it had a great view of the sea. We... More

This island is an amazing get-away from the city, very close as well. You can easily walk across the island and leave from the other pier. Make sure to have lunch at one of the restaurants close to the pier :)

There are two ferries on Lamma Island. First to Sok Kwu Wan. Stroll. Eat at small cafes or take away shops for real food, not something prepared in factory and distributed to branches. Buy at small corner shops. Go to the ferry on another side of the island and enjoy the beautiful scenery on the way.

Many visitors start walking from Yung Shu Wan and end in Sok Kwu Wan. I would suggest the other way round. Take the 10:20 or 11:50 ferry (HK$21 weekday timetable) from Central to Sok Kwu Wan and then have seafood lunch there (less crowded compared with Yung Shu Wan). And then visit the nice Tin Hau Temple nearby before walking... More

We walked the Lamma trail starting in Yung Shue Wan and ending here in Sok Kwu Wan. The town is pretty much just one stree which has a wealth of seafood restaurants on it. We weren't particularly hungry so didn't have a meal but did have a coffee and a nice cake from a place called Bebe V while waiting... More

I was there for lunch after a hike. Alone. Spent 17usd (130hkd) on a set lunch seafood meal and immensely satisfied. mini abalone, calamari, bamboo clams & prawns. To avoid being ripped off, go for a set meal where the prices are listed upfront. As compared to Yung Shue Wan, Sok Kwu Wan seems a little more rustic. I would... More

This is heaven for seafood junkies. Take the ferry from pier 4 for about a 40 min ride to a great selection of seafood restaurants. Don't get sucked in by the first tout. Look along all the restaurants then choose one. Great afternoon of seafood and beer in an open air restaurant. Yep.....heaven!!!
