Some are crazily busy and urban, with towering skyscrapers and huge crowds of people (what people usually think of), others contain just a few villages, inhabited by fishermen who still make their living from the sea as they have for hundreds of years. The only way to get to these islands is by ferry or boat, so there are no cars allowed (making for many good walking opportunities).
Lamma is one such island. I visited a different one (Cheung Chau) last time I was in Hong Kong, and loved it (B was ready to move there!), but I've never been to Lamma. Even though it feels remote, it's still in Hong Kong, which means the ride to the center of things takes only half an hour. My mom and I will still be able to get in lots of shopping (Hong Kong is the best place I have ever been for this).
