"Sok Kwu Wan" Lamma Island Tip by leffe3

Lamma Island, Hong Kong: 25 reviews and 56 photos

One of the two ferry destinations from Central (approximately 40 minutes), the fishing village of Sok Kwu Wan is to be found on the eastern seaboard of the island in its own little bay. On the opposite side of the bay is the rather ugly quarry and cement works, which does somewhat spoil any views from the restaurants and has impacted on the fishing industry in the bay - the slurry and run-off polluting the water. The village is little more than a single pedestrianised 'street' - one side the outdoor dining area of the restaurants lining the other side. They are reputed to be much better than those to be found in Yung Shue Wan. Other than lunch, the main reason for coming here is that its the start (or end) of the fairly easy walk to Yung Shue Wan - thus many start at one ferry stop and walk to the other (about 1.5 hours in total, allowing for stops). But it is also the start and end of a wonderful if strenuous circular walk into the guts of the island. (see seperate tip)
