The walk starts on the multicultural main street of Yung Shue Wan village. Standing 71 metres tall, the striking Lamma wind turbines are accessible to the public for free. Hung Shing Yeh’s powdery sands and clean water attracts day -trippers from the downtown. Following the Family Walk you will soon reach a pavilion that offers the chance for a breather as well as magnificent views of Lantau Island and Cheung Chau in the distance. Just around a 15-minute walk from the pavilion, you come to sandy Lo So Shing Beach. This was a lime producing centre during the Tang dynasty (618-907). You can still find some ancient limekilns here today. Just beyond this is Kamikaze Cave, where the Japanese forces occupying Hong Kong during the Second World War launched speed boat suicide missions against allied shipping. The trail ends in Sok Kwu Wan, a village where you can learn about traditional fishing lifestyles, eat award-winning seafood and explore a 150-year old Tin Hau temple. Tip: much of this trail is not shaded. Be prepared for exposure to sun, wind and rain.
