Island Excursions: Ferry Edition

Island Excursions: Ferry Edition

With Hong Kong being made up of 263 islands, escaping the hustle and bustle of the city is easier than you think. If you are new to exploring the islands with your dogs, we're here with our first edition of Island Excursionsto help you navigate your way around the outlying islands, and highlight some of the must-see attractions.


Ma Wan (Park Island)


This little island between Tsing Yi and Lantau is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of an island excursion, which is exactly why it's the perfect place to visit on your day off - because not everyone thinks to come to this spot! You can actually get to this island by road, however, there are two ferries to help you get to Ma Wan; Central Ferry Pier No. 2 for a 20 minute ferry ride, and Tsuen Wan Ferry Pier for a 12 minute boat ride. Once there, you can hike to Tai Leng Tau, where you can get a beautiful vantage point of the Tsing Ma Bridge, or hike along the coast and uncover several secluded beaches on the island, which make for a great pit stop with the dog. If you are a fan of coffee shops, visit the quaint little coffee shop of 米九十 Cafe IKI for some light bites and insta-worthy snaps of the cute decor and treats. For more information on the ferry schedule, check here.

From Central Pier No. 4, there are two ferries to take you to either ends of Lamma; Sok Kwu Wan or Yung Shue Wan. Sok Kwu Kwan, also known as Picnic Bay, is a 30 to 40-minute ferry ride, and is home to several seafood restaurants, some Japanese Kamikaae tunnels and several beautiful coastal trails on the Southern side of Lamma. You can also access Sham Wan Beach from this end, however, please note that this beach is off limits during 1 April and 31 October each year due to sea turtle conservation. If you are looking for a quiet island day out, Sok Kwu Wan is idyllic. You can also get to Mo Tat Wan and Sok Kwu Wan via a ferry service disembarking from Aberdeen for a 35-minute ferry ride, and of course, dogs are welcome. If you want to visit the slightly busier Yung Shue Wan for a shorter ferry ride of 27 minutes, this populated side of Lamma can still make for a good day out, and is home to pet-friendly hotels, Concerto Inn and Bellagio Pets Friendly Resort. Both of which are a short stroll away from dog-friendly beach, Power Station Beach. Pets are allowed on all sailings of these ferries at a small fee, and are to be carried in a carrier or muzzled. For ferry pricing and schedule, check here.
