Lamma Island's hiking trail is a pleasant walk between serene Sok Kwu Wan and vibrant Yung Shue Wan. The path is generally flat and offers a nice view of the island as well as Aberdeen.

So to start. Take the pier 4 ferry, pay exact amount at entry with coin available at booth. We hopped off at Yung Shue Wan in deference to recommendations of Sok Kwu Wan. The recommendation was that it was an easier walk from Sok Kwu Wan. This was the case but anyone with reasonable fitness would not notice. The walk was well sign posted despite reviews to the contrary. The total walk took us about 90 minutes and we stopped off regularly for toilet (I'm married say no more).....The walk was hot but plenty of shady spots and buy things along the way. The beach at the half way point was monitored by lifesavers and facilities existed. The walk is very well maintained and all paved. We ate at the Sok Kwu Wan end and we could see that it would be busy on weekends. The food was more expensive than on HK. Lots of options to walk off at various points across the island but overall if your visiting HK it is really a very good option. The return ferry accepted payment during the return trip, nice and easy.

Great way to get out of the city and enjoy wonderful views and end it all with a swim in the South China Sea. Be sure to eat at one of the dock side fish eateries.

If you are fond of hiking then this is the place to go. We had experts with us, so managed to walk through this trail, which was really awesome. Please avoid the hike during rains.

I wouldn't call it hiking, you'd be okay in a regular pair of trainers.
Can get steep in places, routes are paved. worth the views once you've reached the top.

Came here with some friends for some hiking. Great trails. Well maintained. I recommend hiking from one ferry terminal to the next and having lunch. Seafood is good and reasonable. You can haggle a little with the restaurants depending on the size of the group. Avoid on the weekends as it gets very crowded with people escaping the city. Beach looks nice for swimming in the summer.

Yes, it's a nice gentle walk which we took about 2 hours to do, stopping here and there on the way. There are loos at the half-way point too. We arrived on Lamma and walked to Sok Kwu Wan, from where we caught a ferry back (they are going about 2 hourly by late afternoon). There are plenty of eating places either end of the walk. There are always lots of people. Avoid public holidays as it must be terribly crowded then. There is lots of bird song at this time (April), especially the red-whiskered bulbuls with their 4-note "YOU ARE CRA-ZY!" call. Best of all: the island is free of traffic!

30mins ferry away from central pier 4, a local village style little island with few small beaches around and there are local Chinese seafood restaurant as well as western food to choose.

Ignore the guidebooks, this trail is substantially more hilly than anyone reports. Perhaps we took it too fast, but coming from Lamma, the trail vaults upward after the beach and keeps climbing consistently. Yes, it is a paved trail and not particularly tricky to walk on, but it has some very steep ups and some very steep downs amid the flats on each side. I recommend against bringing along anyone who doesn't appreciate some hills. Worth it? Yes, it affords beautiful views and you can catch a ferry at the other end....just give yourself some time to go slow.

After reading reviews, I approached this hike from Sok Kwu Wan, walking towards Yung Shue Wan, and there is one long and steep section towards the end that way, walking Down. I can see how coming the opposite direction would have made the start of that hike much more strenuous.

It's paved the whole way, so managable for moderate fitness, but if you are staring at Sok Kwu Wan and find yourself in front of the huge Pig mural, you have missed the right hand turn off towards Yung Shue Wan. The sign there is VERY easy to miss for that branch off.

Otherwise, it's pretty well signed, with seats and vistas along the way.

If you want to take a break from shopping, this was an excellent half day distraction, which cost about HKD20 each way from Central.
