Lamma Island – Escape the bustle of city life in Hong Kong.

Visit Hong Kong in south eastern China to discover what draws millions of tourists each year. The city has much history and culture that is evident in the monasteries and other religious sites. The city’s modern side includes several entertainment venues, shopping malls and contemporary style hotels. In Wanchai Hong Kong, you will find an upmarket shopping destination. Explore the cosmopolitan neighbourhood, which is known for its buzzing nightlife, rattan and Chinese furniture, clothing at bargain prices and electronics. There are also a number of centrally located accommodation options like Cosmo Hotel Wan Chai Hong Kong.

Lamma Island was once known as ‘Bok Liu Chau’ meaning the southern tree branch. It is a mere three kilometres from the coast of Hong Kong. The East Lamma Channel flows between them. Lamma Island has two main villages, Yung Shue Wan and Sok Kwu Wan, where most of the island’s five thousand residents live. The island also has an expat community that has made the island, with its rustic atmosphere, their home. Day trippers often come over from Hong Kong to break away from the fast pace of their normal lives. Aside from a power station and a lone wind turbine, much of the island remains untouched. The three hundred and fifty three metre high Mount Stenhouse can be found on the south side and there are remote beaches all around.

Take a ferry to get to the island from Central Pier 4 on Hong Kong Island or from Aberdeen. The island is popular for its seafood restaurants. Family Trail is a paved walking path that leads from Yung Shue Wan Village in the north and Sok Kwu Wan Village in the south. Walking the entire length of the trail takes about one hour and is a fine scenic tour of island life.
