Located in the southwest of Hong Kong, Lamma Island with an area of 13.85 sq km is the third largest island in the territory after Lantau Island and Hong Kong Island.

Lamma Island provides a significant reference for archaeological studies of Hong Kong. Archaeological remains suggest that the island was inhabited by early settlers during the Middle Neolithic period (c. 4000 – 2500 BC). Specifically, many archaeological remains from the Bronze Age (c. 1500 – 221 BC) have been excavated at Sham Wan, Tai Wan, Yung Shue Wan and Lo So Shing. Besides, the Sham Wan Site of Special Scientific Interest is the only known nesting site for globally-endangered green turtles (Chelonia mydas) in Hong Kong.

Yung Shue Wan is where the bulk of Lamma's population is concentrated, followed by Sok Kwu Wan. A 7-km hiking trail linking up these two popular places for seafood dining is a route suitable for all ages.
