Guishan Island, Yilan

(50+ reviews on the web)
Island
Guishan Island boasts Taiwan's only active volcano. Named for its close resemblance to a floating sea turtle, the 2.85 sq km (1.1 sq mi) island sits atop a stratovolcano rising from the sea floor. It was originally home to fishermen before being used as a military base in 1977; it opened as a tourist attraction in 2000. Access the island by taking a boat, in fact, watch for dolphins in the area as you go. On the island you can soothe your muscles in active hot springs, climb up steep hills and cliffs, and take in sights of the island's rich plant life. Plan to see Guishan Island and other attractions that appeal to you using our Yilan travel itinerary maker.

  • 龜沒出海走一遭,龜山島永遠是新聞節目的一個浮光掠影。真正上了船,才發現變了天,穿太少,吃太多,海湧正強。 在宜蘭頭城烏石港,登上山富旅行社預訂的超級星號遊艇出海。遠望龜山島,來不及靠近就搶拍。天氣驟變,微雨和濺上船的海浪,略為濕冷。 船長介紹龜山朝日,龜頭朝東。龜頭有草略長,這是龜毛的由來,船長戲謔說著。龜身在中段部位,又稱龜甲,遠遠聞到硫磺味。也由於該處有硫磺氣及溫泉口,所以,海水的顏色受到硫磺...  more »
  • 不僅是坐船看海景,登陸島嶼後也能看見豐富的花草,在導遊的細心介紹下能知道龜山島曾經的變化及歷史,島上仍保留幾座當年居民的住宅,現在廟宇受到颱風損壞希望有朝一日能修繕(聽說佛像漂走很多個)  more »
  • 不論是軍事上的歷史,人文背景,或是地質上的特殊風格,以及島上步道,環島景緻,深深推薦到此一訪。因為特殊場地,登島需要事先申請登記,也正因為如此的管制,在島上遊覽的過程中有比較好的品質,建議連同船航、訪島,估計需要至少半天的時間。若未登401高地,此地適合全齡活動,但礙於地形關係,尚未全程能有無障礙行道的設計,若有行動不便的老者或孩童,請多留意。  more »
