This island provides great views of the city from across the harbor. The only thing I did not like is that I could not climb the lighthouse. I don't know if that is an option but the gate was closed the day I was there.

Calm, relaxing, quiet and serene sum this place up. It is small. The entrance is easy enough to find. The long walk past the naval museum backgate is interesting. The lighthouse reminded me greatly of being in the UK. There are some interesting historical features including an old missile silo and tracks, I think they may have been added by... More

Nice and calm island which gives a new perspective on Qingdao. Enjoy the view and a short stroll in the early morning!

The entrance to Small Qingdao Island is beside Luxan Park, a China National Park, the park is inviting but be aware, the rocks beside the ocean are rugged and crossing them without athletic style shoes is not wise. Although taxis go out to the Island, most people walk from the main road. The admission is CNY 10. Several seafood restaurants... More

This was better when it had a fantastic cafe - there is a light house and great views of Qingdao from the water. go to the naval museum right beside it first as the entrance is on a different street but the exit is right on the entrance to the walkway to the island.

For a really small entrance fee you can pass a long pier and walk around a small island in front of Qingdao with a lighthouse. The park is nicely decorated, you will see pretty flowers and trees as well as some nice pieces of art (a statue with a lyra, that is really enchanting) During summer you can enjoy cold... More

It is a small island and you can walk around it in ten minutes if you just want to do that. However, you may choose to enjoy yourself by taking in the view. Zhanqiao Pier can be seen from here and the sea breeze is great. If you walk along the causeway back to the main road, you will pass... More

While we visited we thought it would be a nice place to have a picnic in a shady spot, watch the boats and people go by. Great views. Stairs carved into stone. Before you get onto the dam to walk across to Little Qingdao you will find a few Seafood restaurants and also a park called Luxun park. Right and... More

We first went to the Navy museum. Once we left this museum we walked to Xiao Qingdao. Right now (July 2013) you need to walk back to the main street, turn right and right again to find your way to the dam connecting mainland with Xiao Qingdao. The door/gate connecting the navy museum directly with the dam was closed. The... More

Xiaoqingdao is a small island at the end of a causway, admittance Y10, next to the navy museum. It's a pleasant enough place but the best things are the views out to sea and back to the old pier and skyscrapers of the city.
