Lamma Island

Sok Kwu Wan
Only 30 minutes from Hong Kong’s downtown, Lamma Island is a popular weekend getaway because of its hiking trails, multicultural shops and cafes, and renowned seafood dining.

Those wishing to indulge in the latter will usually head to the old fishing village of Sok Kwu Wan. Here, a row of restaurants, perched above the bay on stilts, offer diners excellent seafood served with pleasant alfresco dining and sea views. Fresh chilli crab, garlic prawns, deep-fried squid and steamed fish with ginger and spring onions are all firm favourites.

It is possible to conclude a day visiting Lamma Island at Sok Wu Wan by following the Lamma Island Family Trail.
