“Lamma Island”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

We went there with friends, the ferry was good and efficient. We went for a walk and looked in the shops.
We had lunch at a seafood restaurant which was quite expensive but very good. A pleasant day out.

“Great day trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

Only half hour ferry ride to the island. You can catch the ferry to one port, walk over the island (quite a walk, 1 1/2 hours at times quite steep) then settle in to a terrific seafood lunch and catch ferry back from the other side.

“Beautiful day-trip/getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

We are living in Hong Kong island and it is so nice to get out out and experience the beautiful islands around this great city. Lamma island is one of the larger islands and is wonderful for nature lovers. The ferry is about 35min from the HK Ferry terminal in Central which is not bad and when you arrive, you are taken to a whole new world. From the small villages you can find if you explore the island to great hiking, small but nice beaches and nice local restaurants, it is worth a day trip for anyone visiting! The views are also extraordinary, both on the island as you hike and also to and from on the ferry.

“Good for a day trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

We caught the ferry to Yung She Wan and started the walk from that side. We decided to have lunch before the walk and chose one but you will notice many have live fish in tanks for eating but make sure you get a price before you commit because we were quoted about $100 AUS for one fish. We declined and ordered fish dishes from the menu which were fine and reasonably priced. I don't know why the live fish was so expensive. There was a wine store there with very reasonable prices so be bought a bottle there and paid corkage at the restaurant. There were some shops there we could browse in before heading off on the walk. The walk can be done in about 1-1.5 hours at a leisurely pace. It finished at Sok Kwu Wan where we caught the ferry back home. Apparently you can do it in reverse depending what ferry you catch to get there. I thought the restaurants at the Sok Kwu Wan end were better looking and done again, I would eat at one of them near the ferry terminal.

“Terrific seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

We have been to this beautiful island on a number of occasions. Each time, we try and have dinner at the Sampan Seafood Restaurant which is located in Yung Shue Wan, just up from the Ferry Terminal in Main Street. On each occasion, the local Chinese seafood has been absolutely delicious and the views from the outside but covered eating area are great. The ferry ride from Central takes around 20 minutes, and also provides a great way to see some of the views of HK. If you are looking for a even more authentic Chinese seafood, then you should also think of catching the ferry to Sok Kwu Wan which is a fishing village on the other side of the Lamma island. The Rainbow Restaurant is very popular with tourists. The two villages are connected by a walking track, which provides some great views and takes about 1.5 to 2 hours to complete. A great place to spend an afternoon..
