Lamma Island is one of those precious outlying islands in Hong Kong you shouldn’t miss, just for gaining a glimpse into Hong Kong’s landscape and a stroll along the beach and country paths. As the island is now inhabited by many expatriates, there are a raft of bars and cafes and international restaurants, as well as shops selling clothes, accessories and jewellery catering to visitors, who are particularly many during the weekend.
So if you want to have some peace savoring Hong Kong’s landscape, come on a weekday.
There is one cool place you can chill out on the island. Well, it is not a bar or a café. It is Han Lok Yun, a Chinese restaurant famous for pigeon food. Sounds strange, right? Pigeon restaurant for chilling out?
This is because the restaurant has a very nice ambience – a garden setting slightly tucked into the hill. You can even have some seaview from the restaurant where it is not blocked by buildings in front. Overall, very relaxing atmosphere and the roasted pigeons are just delicious. Super delicious.
How to get there:
If you walk in the direction of the Hung Shing Yeh beach, it is at your left side, when you almost approach the beach.
