Lamma Island is free of cars, full of beaches and as quiet as a small country town.
But each weekend the village swells with day visitors who all walk the same path, eat at the same restaurants and swim at the same beach. It?s crowded, it?s frustrating and it?s noisy. It?s just like Central.
If you really want to enjoy Lamma, you need to work a little.
First things first -- get off the main path. A spider web of hiking and biking trails traverses the chain of small hills that runs through the middle of Lamma Island.
These dirt paths not only offer the best views, they?re quiet and completely natural, at some points requiring you to push your way through long grass and sparse bush.
