Lamma Island is a small enough island lying a mile or two of the south of Hong Kong Island. It’s a mecca for hikers and dog walkers and hippies and tourists. And ex-pats who want to get away from maid strewn sidewalks on a Sunday.

A quick ferry ride from Central Pier Number 4 and you arrive on Lamma where you can hike a number of different paths. It’s really nice and we walked a nice undulating path for 2 hours. We ended up at a small enclave of seafood restaurants and a pier where ferries head back to Central.
We will definitely go back over the CNY period and do choose some more trails to vary it a little. And of course it’s exciting to see what type of dog is around the next corner.

Lamma Island has a couple of nice beaches also.
