LAMMA ISLAND

 

Description : A small island, popular for its beach and seafood restaurants

Comments : Much smaller than Lantau but bigger than Cheung Chau, Lamma Island offers an easy and relaxing escape.  The crowd is there on week ends but relative isolation is still possible as most of the visitors are attracted to the beaches or restaurants areas. 

What to do : Take a boat to Yung Shue Wan / Visit the village / See old women wearing the traditional large hat / Relax at the beach / Eat barbecue / Walk the trail to Sok Kwu Wan, an easy & nice promenade of around one and a half hour / Select a seafood restaurant / Take a boat back to Central

What you may not like : The crowd on WE / The noise & rubbish near the barbecue sites / The concrete path / The sight of the plant from the beach / The risk when eating seafood in HK
