China's Opal Blue Bay of Lamma Island

I took the ferry over to Lamma Island from the port of Hong Kong. It's the third biggest island in the area and a nice escape from the concrete jungle. It has only about 6,000 residents and is home to a lot of ex-pats - especially artists and musicians. I stopped and had snacks at a cool place called "Deli-Lamma" and spent the late afternoon and evening hiking from one side of the island to the other.

 

I started out at Yung Shue Wan and hiked for several hours around the outside of the island until I made it to Sok Kwu Wan, which you can see below. It is a little fishing village where a bunch of people live out on the water. You may have to zoom in to see the little WaterWorld village... very cool and different.
