After around 20 minutes, you’ll pass Mo Tat Old Village. The route then winds through abandoned farmland and past sweeping ocean views. In the distance are Stanley and the island of Po Toi to the east, and the Lema Islands of Mainland China.

Five minutes on will be Shek Pai Wan; the largest beach on Lamma Island. From here, you’ll pass through Tung O village to climb up to Yam Ling Au.

From Yam Ling Au, the walk back to Sok Kwu Wan takes about 50 minutes. If you need a hit of energy before climbing on a ferry back to Central, head for Seafood Street – a group of restaurants raised on stilts above the bay that are often bursting with day trippers on weekends. You can also take the Lamma Island Family Trail to explore the rest of the island.
