Hung Shing Ye Beach is one of the more popular beaches on Lamma Island. The beach is located on the northern half of the island, which means access to it from Yung Shue Wan is easier.
Getting To Hung Shing Ye Beach
Once you arrive at the pier, follow the main street and signs to Hung Shing Ye Beach. The walk is about 30 minutes, so remember to stay hydrated. The path cuts across the old villages on Lamma Island, so finding a place to sit, grab a bite or drink isn’t a problem. Also, since the path is fairly popular with beachgoers, you’ll find numerous shops and street vendors selling everything from mosquito repellents to spicy Korean chicken.
Or you could also approach the beach from the other side on the Lamma Island Family Trail.
The Lamma Power Station Beach
Moments before the path finishes at the Hung Shing Ye beach, it arrives at a crossroad. At the crossroad, you could either take a detour to the Lamma Power Station beach, a smaller beach right next to the massive chimneys of the power plant, or head up to Lamma Winds, a giant windmill on top of a hill on the island. The Lamma Power Station beach is only a 2-3 minute detour. I don’t think I can say the same for the windmill.
Walk straight down the crossroad and you’ll arrive at your destination in under 3 minutes.
Hung Shing Ye beach is fairly commercial, so expect crowds on a holiday and weekends. Like most beaches in Hong Kong, there are rocks on the side of the beach and also a large public barbeque area.
There is also a motel/resort on the beach called Concerto Inn, which seemed like a great place for a stay-cation.
