SOUTHERN LAMMA ISLAND
南丫島

Today’s adventure begins the moment we board our ferry from Aberdeen to the tiny hamlet of Mo Tat Wan as we enjoy the sights and sounds
of Aberdeen's busy fishing harbour from the open deck of our little ferry.

Once on Lamma, we pass vegetable plots and a number of small villages before reaching the beach at Tung O Wan. Here we embark on the
biggest challenge of the day, the 250 metres tall
Ling Kok Shan. It might be a hot climb, but the views from the top are spectacular – and we
will take it easy.

The only negative thing is that what goes up must come down and the descent from Ling Kok Shan does involve an awful lot of steps.…

Slightly “jelly-kneed” we head for a tranquil and
secluded beach for a swim, refreshments – and perhaps a shower – before ending our walk
at one of the restaurants at Picnic Bay (or Sok Kwu Wan as it’s now called).

Ferries leave Sok Kwu Wan for Hong Kong island at reasonable intervals, so feel free to make this a full day out....
