There is a fine line between rustic and grotty, and unfortunately the small town at Yung Shue feels like the latter. There are a few places to eat (avoid 'Best Kebab and Pizza' like the plague though, despite the Lonely Planet endorsement), lots of second hand shops and precious little else in this run-down village. The walk to the beach... More

I really love this island, so different from Hong Kong itself. There are no cars on this island so you can just stroll on & on. Their seafood restaurants are famous. You must try squid with chilly & pepper. They are very tender & so tasty, contrary to what most people think (theink squids are rubbery).

Took a ferry from Aberden to Lamma with friends. It was a relaxing island. We enjoyed different kinds of fresh seafood from a restaurant. We slowly walked part of the island. It was very scenic & peaceful.

If you like visiting an outlying island, this is almost the best choice. It is accesible by ferries from the pier in Central waterfront, and also by small boats from Aberdeen. Some people go to the island to walk up the hill from one pier to another to return to Hong Kong. Some take a stroll near the pier to... More

The visit starts with a 30 minute ferry ride to get you in the relaxed mood for the visit. Once on the island there are lots of walks that can be undertaken that are not too hard. Then you can stop at one of the many cafes or seafood restaurants and enjoy a well timed meal.

A walk from Yung Shu Wan to Sok Kwu Wan takes about 45 minutes. Or vice versa. That will get your appetite up for some famous Lamma seafood. Enjoy.

Indeed the island is very quiet compared to the busy streets of Hong Kong but those streets are more clean and well kept than the island. The hike is okay although almost every scenic spot and beach is ruined by the presence or sound of either the electrical plant or the cement plant. View points have had no maintenance for... More

If you are enough for the busy city life, Lamma Island is one of the place which suitable for you. After a 30 minutes travel on the sea, you can arrive to Lamma Island, a place which allows you to enjoy the fishing village culture which only remaining a few in Hong Kong. Beside of the local culture, the foreigners... More

I was quite excited about my trip to Lamma Island but I have to say it didn't really live up to the tripadvisor hype. Perhaps on a less gloomy day it might have been a little more magical but I definitely didn't get the 'laidback hippy' vibe that's often referenced. Also we'd been to Lantau Island a few days previous... More

The hike around the island has some climbs that will get your heart rate going, and some views that will quicken your pulse. Bring some water and snacks. There are a few restrooms around the island but the are not the cleanest. As far as the restaurants are concerned, from what the locals tell me, the fish is shipped in... More
