Guishan Island, Yilan

(3.7/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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 »
  • Of the Pacific runs from Taipei to Hualien, Ilan Orchid line trains after the Fulong. Hope the little Turtle Island in the Pacific Ocean from the window of the train. So to get continuous tunnel, so don't miss out.
