It took us about 40 minutes to get there from Island Shangri La hotel. I would recommend that you hike if the weather permits - and if you do, bring your towel and swim suit! The beach is beautiful and you can find open showers as well. It was too chilly when we went in Feb, but when I go back to Hong Kong I will most definitely also go back to Lamma Island for a swim.

It takes just over half an hour to get to this island from the mainland, but it feels like you've crossed a border. This island has no motorised vehicles and can be walked around in a day. There are 2 main walking paths, and be prepared to spend an afternoon walking just one of them. Stopping by the beaches, remnants of buildings and beautiful forests - and you'll lose a full day.
Just be warned about the seafood. Quite expensive if you're travelling solo, and honestly not that great. Bring your own food or if you can, wait till you head back to the mainland.

Figuring out which Ferry to take is crucial, but its only 17HKD to get from Aberdeen to Lamma. Or you can go from Central Piers. But you can spend 2-4 hours hiking, you can pick strenuous hikes, or like me, at 62 yrs young, I did the 2-3 hour leisurely walk from one village to the next. There are plenty of maps so you won't get lost. Then comes the pubs, plenty to choose from, and seafood restaurants, all very reasonable, and you get your money's worth.

You can access by ferry from Central Station. You should go only if you are ready to walk on the trail (about 7 km between the ferry stops). Although there is a coal thermoeletric plant on the island, nature is still well preserved and provides many beautiful landscapes.

It is a very good hike, bring along towel and swim suit. The beach is beautiful with free changing rooms and open shower area. The water is around 5m visibility. There were some debris on the surface of the sea, but it seems like seaweeds. water was cold but the weather was beautiful. The hike is very easy, I rather say it's a walk. The seafood is a reasonable for the portion but a little expensive still. We ordered set for two, $238, the portion were small and shrimps were the smaller ones. The fish wasn't the tangy fresh kind but they say is seasonal. We ordered a crab, cost us another $250. We manage to make it for the 735pm boat back. Was great to have a sunset seafood dinner here.
