We reached Sok Kwu Wan at the end of our trail from Yung Shue Wan on Lamma. Pretty village with lots of fishing boats scattered in the sea. There are a plethora of dining options. We had lunch in Thai Yuen Seafood Restaurant which I would surely recommend. We took a set menu for 4 of us and every dish was so yummy! With free drinks, the bill for 4 came at 828HKD which is not bad for the amount and quality of food we had. Moreover, they accepted credit card which is rare on Lamma. There is also a very nice souvenir shop at the promenade.

...for when you first arrive on Lamma Island, as the main ferry from Central takes people to the other end. There are lots of options for seafood, including the famous Rainbow Seafood restaurant (which has its own boat to take diners over), and a few other interesting bars and shops too, as well as a pretty Tim Hau temple on the main path out. To get an even better view of the village and its bay, make sure to visit the lookout opposite. Both of Lamma’s main villages have their charms but the remote nature of Sok Kwu Wan and little details like it’s covered main walkway make it just as much of a destination as Yung Shue to the north.

Lamma Island is a favourite day-trip. Ferries from Central go to both Sok Kwu Wan and Yung Shue Wan which are on opposite sides of the island.
I prefer Sok Kwu Wan because the seafood restaurants are better here. It is a much smaller village but there is a stretch of local restaurants running right along the waterfront. In particular, Rainbow Restaurant is an established and popular spot. If you’re eating here, they have a boat which will pick you up and take you back to Central (although I’ve never used this).
Sok Kwu Wan has a small beach and a few interesting sights. The Kamikaze Caves are a fascinating part of Hong Kong’s WWII history and the 150 year old Tin Hau has a strange exhibit - a rare and freakish giant oar fish, perfectly preserved in a 3.5 metre long glass cage. Up above the village, there is a pavilion with stunning views back down over the harbour.
An excellent plan for a day trip is to start with lunch at Sok Kwu Wan and then hike the Family Trail up and over the island to Yung She Wan, catching the ferry back home from here. It’s a 3km scenic walk which takes about an hour. It’s paved and, for the most part, there are no difficult or horribly steep sections so children can manage it easily.
GETTING THERE: Ferries run regularly from Central Pier 4 every day. You can buy your ticket at the machines near the gate or use an Octopus card so you don't need to book ahead. However on a Sunday, there can be quite a crowd for the ferry so it is good to make an early start if you can. It's a 25 min trip and will cost $22 HKD each way for an adult (a bit more on Sundays and public holidays). It is worth noting that the ferries are more frequent to/from Yung Shue Wan.

Sok Kwu Wan is a small fishing village on an attractive bay on the east coast of Lamma Island. It is the location of a promenade with many traditional Chinese seafood restaurants as well as a few piers to/from Central and Aberdeen on Hong Kong Island.

The popular Lamma Island Family Walk trail to/from Yung Shui Wan on the northwest side of Lamma Island starts at the end of the row of seafood restaurants. There are a few interesting sightseeing opportunities in the area of Sok Kwu Wan, including the Tin Hau Temple, Kamikazi Cave and the Lo So Shing Sitting Out area, across the bay with views of Sok Kwu Wan. You can then carry on with your hike up to Yung Shui Wan or your ferry return to Hong Kong Island.

Nice view and must go place is wind power station. A typical hong kong island with dense population. If you want to see pure nature, I won’t recommend this island. But for sea food, you should go there.

Sok Kwu Wan is one of the two main piers in Lamma Island. It is less crowded and more laid-back than Yung Shue Wan. Although nothing particularly interesting, it is a good starting point to explore the island.

Came here in the July, nice trek along the coast line, amazing sceneries and great wildlife. Great place to relax and have a chill weekend!

Could be better if there is a dedicated leaflet to learn more about the history and culture of this island

First, the price are really high (compared to Sai Kung and North Point). HK Locals dont even eat here because of that. Fu Kee is probably the best restaurant here. Lots of dogs in the street (these are cute docile dogs), but if you are unlucky you'll meet a pack of wild dogs roaming in the mountains/beach during hike. They chased me for a few sec because I accidentally went in their territory. Also some signs are misleading, I missed a boat to Aberdeen because the sign said pier 1 when it should be pier 2. Messed up my schedule because of that.

Trip to the first pavilion is easy and worth the trip.

An interesting little fishing village on Lamma Island.
You can walk over to Yung Shue Wan if you have the energy.
I was interested to see the "Kamikaze" caves. There is hardly any documentary evidence regarding these.
We made it a circular trip - from Central Piers to Sok Kwu Wan, then ferry to Aberdeen, then 38 bus back to Central.

This is a great trip. We really enjoyed walking along the paths, seeing the local fishermen and farmers. And had a fantastic seafood lunch at a local restaurant
