Took a ferry to Yung Shue Wan from Outlying Islands ferry pier 4 in Central, just a half hour ride. The island is home to some of Hong Kong's most popular seafood restaurants. We followed the Lamma Island Walking Map to tour the zisland and the trails meander along hills and coastline. In Yung Shue Wan, we walked through narrow... More

We had a group of 12 people and got the boat over to Lamma Island to have lunch. Great little fishing village with heaps of places to choose from to eat. Most of them will do a deal for groups,reducing the set menu price and including a free drink. The beer and wine is much cheaper than HK Island. The... More

Great walk and a nice swim to cool off in the middle of the afternoon. Some of the walk was steep but manageable for sure as there were kids and babies too. The first beach is busy so we opted for Lo So Shing beach, it's also less of an eye sore with the power plant which you can see... More

The most frequent ferry goes to Yung Shu Wan. From here walk for about half an hour to Sok Ku Wan on the concrete pathway. There are a series of restaurants along the waterfront. From here take the kai Do to Aberdeen. There are some lovely beaches on this island if you are prepared to walk.

Easy to walk across the island from one ferry terminal to another. Lots of restaurants at both ends. Nice beach to stop and cool off at.

Make this a relaxing day trip during a week day to avoid all the locals that migrate to this island to relax. The island has nice walks, beaches and excellent sea food restaurants. There are no vehicles other than the mini fire truck so it makes walking about so relaxing. Lots of local nick nacky shops. You can do this... More

It reminded me of many quiet villages near major cities and this is exactly that. HK'ers take the ferry here to get away from the city and go hiking. If that's what you want, come here. Otherwise, it was a little too quiet for me. I didnt go to HK for a quiet time.

Probably not the best day to go. Crowded and seething with people. It was hot and we stopped at a bar but we're told they would only serve drinks with food. Interesting aromas emanating from sewers, beaches were average at best. I'm sure the experience would be better outside of weekend and holidays. The boat ride from central we was... More

It's only 20 mins from Hong Kong and the seafood there was very fresh and delicious. There're trails on the island that's very well made and easy to walk around the island. The view you'll get is also splendid and refresh. So it's the great place to go if you wanna be away from the city.

This is our second time visiting Lamma Island. The last time was four years and back then, we enjoyed the hike from Sok Kwu Wan to Yung Shue Wan. We went back for the same walk recently and wer dismayed to see that the garbage situation has gotten worse on the island and the canals were filthy with a stench.... More
