Lamma Island, Hong Kong

It was really nice to be on Lamma Island, Hong Kong. I swam for the first time in the ocean in Hong Kong in 20 years! And to top it off, it was a late summer-like day on Halloween! Believe it or not, it was also my first visit to the island. Although it is the third largest island in Hong Kong (after Lantau and Hong Kong Islands), its population is considerably smaller, even compare to the small but densely packed Cheung Chau (长洲). My friend and I went swimming in Lo So Shing beach, around 30 to 40 min walk from Sok Kwu Wan (SKW), where we got off the ferry. There are many seafood restaurants and a Tin Hau Temple (as usual for any coastal village).

Since we went on an October Friday, we almost owned Lo So Shing beach (LSS) to ourselves, apart from a few French Canadian toursists, who were quite uncomfortable after knowing we spoke French hahaha. We stayed and chatted on LSS until 5ish, which was a bit late since we did not know the trek up Northwest to Yung Shue Wan would be more than an hour, and it was getting dark really quickly.
