Guishan Island, Yilan

(3.6/5 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.

  • 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.

  • 很難得可以到龜山島一訪,雖然碰上了大雨,但當踏上龜山島的那一刻一切都值得了,天氣也都轉好了,經過導覽員的講解,讓我們更加了解龜山島的歷史。 
  • 迷人的神祕小島,龜山島因為軍事的關係一直被冠上神秘的面紗。不過現在開放登島後,越來越多人可以前來一探究竟。島上風光漂亮,被山圍繞的龜尾湖,面積雖小走個一圈環湖步道慢慢走大概一個多小時就結束了,但景色漂亮,可以站在湖邊欣賞山光水色。 通常申請登島就只有走個環湖步道而已,實在是不過癮!時間允許、有體力的話建議申請登上401高地,可以從島上最高點俯瞰整座龜山島!
