The Lamma Island is believed by archaelogist the oldest cultural site in southern China. The island's natural ambience of a undeveloped fishing village has attracted numerous poets, arts and other city dwellers, who escape to the island for refreshing breaks.


Vehicles are not allowed on the island. Green plants can be seen everywhere. Frog and cricket leaps in the shrubs. Plums palms are everywhere providing shade in summer. 


Most ships first arrive at Yung Shue Wan village, from which visitors can get to many scenic spots and the beach on the island.
