Small Group Hiking Day Tour to Lamma Island Hong Kong
A short ride aboard the Kaito ferry brings you to a sleepy village on the eastern tip of Lamma Island. The hike takes you through near-abandoned villages with their banana plantations and past beautiful old Feng Shui woods, as we follow a lovely paved coastal path on this peaceful, traffic-free island. During the summer months you're often escorted by beautiful butterflies. Climb a hillside for majestic views over the shipping lanes of the South China Sea, neighboring islands Cheung Chau and Lantau and the unspoiled south. Walk past many of Lamma's famous boulders, which make great backdrops for photos. Just before midday reach the Sok Kwu Wan village through a path lined with bamboo, descending into the famous stretch of waterfront seafood restaurants where you can have lunch if you like to (at your own cost). First pay a visit to the atmospheric 1826 Tin Hau temple, designated to the local sea goddess. Leaving the numerous fishing boats, platforms and fish-breeding nets behind, continue your scenic walk past a delightful sandy bay to the bustling village of Yung Shue Wan, where you'll stroll down the narrow streets of tightly packed local shops, absorbing the relaxed atmosphere. The ferry brings you back into busy Central.
