Characteristics:
Lamma Island occupies a total area of 14 sq km. It is the third largest island in Hong Kong, after Lantau Island and Hong Kong Island. Most of the inhabitants reside in Yung Shue Wan in the north and Sok Kwu Wan in the middle. Locals and expatriates alike live there for the idyllic island setting. There are many alfresco restaurants and pubs of international flavours, dainty shops selling handicrafts, green products and home-made food along Yung Shue Wan Street. A 20-minutes' walk from the Yung Shue Wan Pier is Hung Shing Yeh Wan, a popular beach with soft sand and clear water. There is a family trail linking Yung Shue Wan with Sok Kwu Wan. A pavilion is located at mid-point where visitors can enjoy the vistas of Lamma's rugged coastline and Lantau Island as well.

Sok Kwu Wan is famous for its fishing farms packed with rafts and waterfront seafood restaurants. Not far away from these seafood restaurants is the Tin Hau Temple, which is more than 150 years old. Lo So Shing Beach is just a 20-minutes' walk from So Kwu Wan. The beach is quiet and shaded with trees. There is craggy terrain in Lamma – in the south stands Mount Stenhouse, 353 m high, the highest point in Lamma. In the southern coast is Sham Wan, an archaeological site, where green turtles inhabit here.

The Lamma Winds is the first wind power station in Hong Kong. Opened in February 2006, the wind turbine is 71 m high and one of the landmark in Lamma.
