4.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
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.

  • It is a place not to be missed. The island is very wild and still fairly well preserved. All hotels are concentrated in the North West and the rest of the island is very natural. Volcanic island that has sources of hot water on the beach. Don't forget to dive (we have resorted to Blue safari) as coral reefs are beautiful. Full of clownfish in their anemones. The only means of transport is the scooter. Hard enough to rent if you are a foreigner and without international licence. (Only a store rents electric scooters that don't require international licence)
