I would suggest taking some food with you when going to see the statue and monastery. There aren't very many options nearby except the vegetarian food at the monastery.

Tourist Information will tell you that both local train and ferry go from Hong Kong to Lantau Island. I preferred the ferry because you see the view of Hong Kong city and other islands on the way.

Lantau Island is beautiful. Monastery and Buddha Statue are the big tourist draws but it has great beaches as well. Even if you are not interested in other things, you can just go there for beaches.
