Shopping on Lamma Island

Like any seaside or fishing village in the world of course when you come to Lamma you will find souvenirs of the sea, from shell necklaces to ornaments, and being a part of China bamboo is always there to make little whistles and wall decorations.

But uniquely in Lamma the influence of the expatriate community with the local fisher folk has made a range of rural and relaxed purchases possible like nowhere else in Hong Kong.


Lamma Honey - One of the few places in Hong Kong with a working bee colony you can buy fresh honey. Between Hung Shing Yeh beach and Sok Kwu Wan on the Family Trail you'll pass by the large signs for Lamma Bee Valley and can buy

Lolo Shop - Located near Sok Kwu Wan this locally run art shop sells one of a kind hand made rings, bags, accessories and just nice things. Open every day from 11am until 7pm.

Dried Seafood - Mainly in Sok Kwu Wan but also elsewhere there are shops selling the traditional Chinese Dried Seafoods. From salted fish through to dried shrimp, with many variations in between, these are a great site though strongly smelling and perhaps hard to take home.


Food and Dining

Because of the heritage of Lamma as a working fishing island there is no shortage of seafood restaurants on the island. Combined with the Cantonese love of fresh seafood and it is not hard to imagine how Lamma has become a go-to place for a seafood dinner.

There a large number of restaurants both at Yung Shue Wan and at Sok Kwu Wan, and both have a main street with a range of seafood restaurants. If Seafood is the main reason for your visit then Sok Kwu Wan will provide all your needs, but if you are interested in a wider range of cuisine and have more time then Yung Shue Wan while give you more choices.
