Lamma Island Tours

1 Review
With no cars, a small population, old-fashioned buildings, excellent hikes, hidden beaches, and al fresco seafood restaurants, Lamma Island offers welcome respite from Hong Kong’s bustle. The closest and third-largest island of Hong Kong’s outlying islands, Lamma remains largely undeveloped, with a decidedly bohemian vibe, thanks in part to its youthful expat population.

The Basics
When frenetic pace of Hong Kong’s concrete jungle gets to be too much, an escape to Lamma Island might be in order. Many visitors experience the island on a private or group tour, with options that include sea kayaking or a guided hike between the island’s main villages, Yung Shue Wan and Sok Kwu Wan. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The island makes a great escape from the hectic pace of Hong Kong.
  • Don’t forget sunscreen, swimwear, and a towel to enjoy Lamma’s many beaches.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking on uneven surfaces.
  • Bring plenty of water, especially if you plan to hike between Lamma’s villages.

How to Get to Lamma Island
The easiest way to reach Lamma Island independently is to take a ferry ride from the Central Ferry Pier on Hong Kong Island (the same place where you catch the Star Ferry). Boats depart every hour or two, and you can choose between an ordinary ferry (35 minutes) or a faster one (20 minutes).

When to Get There
For the most enjoyable time on the island, plan your visit for a weekday when the sun is shining. On Sundays and holidays, Hong Kong residents head to the island for family outings, so expect the ferry and the hiking trails to be crowded.

Points of Interest on Lamma Island
Lamma’s main town, Yung Shue Wan, is known for its hippie vibe, craft shops, eclectic eateries, and Tin Hau Temple, while much smaller Sok Kwu Wan attracts with its waterfront seafood restaurants. Floating in the harbor is Lamma Fisherfolk’s Village, an outdoor museum highlighting the area’s fishing history and heritage. Beachgoers looking for a quiet stretch of sand should head to Lo So Shing Beach, situated on a small bay. Hung Shing Yeh Beach is popular with families.
