Sanxiantai, Taitung County

4.3
Explore Sanxiantai, a small island off the coast of Taiwan, connected to the mainland by a long footbridge. The island consists of three large rocks and its name translates to "platform of the three immortals," in reference to China’s eight immortals, three of which are said to have landed on this island. The island itself has a beach that stretches for 10 km (6 mi) and offers fantastic views of the scallop-designed footbridge. Follow a network of footpaths to enjoy scenic views, then climb to the top of the lighthouse for the most rewarding of the island's vistas. The surrounding sea has an abundance of marine life, perfect for scuba diving fanatics. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Taitung County trip simple and quick.

  • Great view of the Pacific. Very enjoyable stroll around the islet. Good location for some photo taking.  more »
  • Worth the visit as part of a bus pass tour from Taitung. If it's windy, there are dramatic views of the ocean. The bridge is unusual too.  more »
  • It's a pity to come to Taiwan. It is beautiful to take a picture of the sky when the weather is good, to look at the sea view and leisurely walks. Blowing the sea breeze is also a great experience, with the ability of the people to recommend that the whole journey is an absolutely perfect experience.
