we read a lot about the Big Bhudda, Tai O - the typical fisher town - but we read also that it is touristic, crowded, and not really what you would expect. So we decided to go to Lamma instead. It is really easy to...More

The island is small, quiet, can be dirty and does not offer great food choices. BUT it has nice hiking trails and I do recommend it for people who are sick of the crowds and need some rest from the city. Reserve a whole day...More

Hiked around the island and was shocked about the nasty and sad atmosphere - especially off the beaten track around the main piers. Most of the beaches are quite dirty, restaurants and resorts are abandonned. Southern Lamma comes across like a ghost area. I felt...More

There is a good trail from the largest village to the second largest village with ferry connections at both ends. We went just after a typhoon which made it more interesting due to the number of trees that were down.

We had previously been to Lantau Island & Cheung Chau Island & found them both fascinating, however Lamma Island was very run down, dirty & in our opinion, definitely not worth a visit.

Lamma is super chill. Plenty of restaurants and shops + hiking makes it a lovely day trip. The beaches are decent and most have lifeguards and nets. There are plenty of places for hiking and quite a cross traffic of people come through on a...More

We took a ferry to Sok Kwu Won on Lamma Island and hiked on the "Family Trail" to the northern port of Yung Shue Wan, where we got another ferry back to Hong Kong. We hiked along a paved path which sometimes was quite steep,...More

Hi, I cannot tell you for certain - this is a very popular place - I think your only hope for a grill is to get there super early. Hope you have a great day.

If you take the slow ferry across (only about 20 minutes longer), you will arrive at the town of Sok Kwu Won (I think) with more restaurants. Many are under the same management. Just look in the aquaria until you see the... More
