Lamma Island is a good place to get away after a large dose of
from visiting the sights of Hong Kong.
Lamma Island is a small island still relatively quiet, with a few trails
on it. And: no cars!! (Well, except a few small go-cart-like
goods vehicles.) On it - the island, that is, you will find small shops, some paved
trails, a few small vegetable fields, a few beaches, and seafood
restaurants. Last but not least, there's also a wind turbine for generating electricity.
You can take a ferry from one of the outlying island piers
just west of the new Star
Ferry pier in Central, outside of IFC mall.
(At the time of writing, it is pier number
The ferry fare on weekdays is a bit cheaper than weekends.
The island is also quieter on weekdays. If you really like to get some laid
back time, there are holiday lodges for rent at quite reasonable
prices by Hong Kong standard. But don't expect luxury.
