Lamma is as overhyped as it is litter strewen. It has an excellent beach but it can also be hellishly crowded.

If you enjoy seafood and hiking, you can easily spend half a day on this island. Also, there are some small cafe and shops on part of the island.

Enjoyed the ferry trip and the 1st village and beach - should have taken swim things! The walk across the island was good until we got to the 2nd village which had rubbish everywhere, on the beach, pond and sides of the street

I think it will be busy on a long Sat weekend. I don't like crowds at all so if it were me I wouldn't go. But some people don't mind crowds.
