Green Island, Taitung County

4.4
Green Island offers a wide range of outdoor activities in a scenic natural setting. Among the island's natural wonders, the saltwater hot springs and a cave that houses a stalagmite allegedly resembling the Goddess of Mercy remain top draws. Coral reefs along the coastline attract snorkelers and scuba divers, while history buffs appreciate remnants of aboriginal houses and a former prison of China's communist regime. For scenic views, visit the lighthouse or follow a short path that that imitates the Great Wall and leads to a lookout point.
