Boats on Lamma Island

Stuck In Big Cities?

This sometimes happens to me too. I get to a big city that has all sorts of interesting stuff, and I don’t take the time for little out-of-town excursions. I should try to do this more… I’m mostly writing this as a personal reminder to myself to do this sort of thing!

Daily Photo – Boats on Lamma Island

I don’t think many people leave Hong Kong to come visit Lamma Island, but it is a nice jaunt. There is a nice hiking path around the island and it ends at this little harbor. There’s lots of food and the reflections around sunset are a treat.

The Shrine of Offering

This was found on Lamma Island, just a short ferry ride from Hong Kong. I wanted to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city for a while, and this quiet little island had some very quaint little shrines like this.

The Blue of Lamma Island

Lamma Island is one of the many tiny islands surrounding Hong Kong. It has some great fish restaurants… needless to say.

I took the ferry over to Lamma Island from the port of Hong Kong. It’s the third biggest island in the area and a nice escape from the concrete jungle. It has only about 6,000 residents and is home to a lot of ex-pats – especially artists and musicians. I stopped and had snacks at a cool place called “Deli-Lamma” and spent the late afternoon and evening hiking from one side of the island to the other.

I started out at Yung Shue Wan and hiked for several hours around the outside of the island until I made it to Sok Kwu Wan, which you can see below. It is a little fishing village where a bunch of people live out on the water. You may have to zoom in to see the little WaterWorld village… very cool and different.
