LAMMA ISLAND

We took a quick day trip from Hong Kong to nearby Pok Liu Chau a.k.a Lamma Island, a laidback little place filled with fishing villages, great sea views and a relaxed pace of life about 30 minutes on the ferry away.

We hiked from north to south, which was a nice 7km route starting at the lively Yung Shue Wan Main Street, through sleepy residental streets, old coastal villages and onto the Hung Shing Yeh Beach popular with families, kids and groups of friends.

 We climbed up to the top of the peak overlooking the bay and the rather unsightly power station, coming back down the other side with misty views of Lantau Island and Cheung Chau across the sea and ending in the traditional Chinese fishing village Sok Kwu Wan, where we walked through the markets and sat at a seafood restaurant with a drink waiting for the next boat back to the Central Pier.
