Island Hopping in Hong Kong
There are so many outlying islands around Hong Kong that have regular ferry services from Hong Kong Island! Take a break from the city to head out on an adventure to one of the many islands around Hong Kong.
Cheung Chau meaning “long island” is around 10km away from Hong Kong Island. The unusually shaped island is full of personality and culture! You can rent bikes and go around the island, eat the all the local snacks and eat fresh seafood by the sea! There are beaches, temples and you can spend the day there in the sun.
Lamma Island feels like an old fishing village with a community of 6,000 people. The seafood restaurants are fresh, local and delicious. You can take walks from Sok Kwu Wan and Yung Shue Wan (the villages)
The 1.1 square kilometer island called Peng Chau has a scenic view at “Finger Hill” where you can see a panoramic view of the coastline! You can go fishing and there are seafood restaurants and temples if you want to check those out!
The largest outlying island around Hong Kong is Lantau. The home of Disneyland Hong Kong International Airport and The Big Buddha!
Kwo Chau Island
The 26 islands are uninhabited and you need to book a cruise to see the volcanic rock columns. Divers come to see the marine life and clear waters. There isn’t any public transport available yet so make sure to book in advance!
If you’re in the mood to go camping, Tap Mun is a great place to getaway for the weekend. There are shops, restaurants and attractions to visit! Check out Tin Hau Temple, Tap Mun Cave and Layered Rock!
