Great view after a nice walk up, take photos, great also if you have young kids. There is very little on display so enjoy the lighthouse for what is there.

I've seen better lighthouses. This one is OK but the flow of ppl doesn't make it attractive. There are a couple of trails in the mangrove and the rocky shore if you prefer.

it's in cijin island and you need to walk a steep road to this light house. you can have a whole view of cijin here and feel the sea breeze here. i went there at noon and luckily not much tourists around so i think it's worth going if you go to cijin.

We went as a family of 7 adults. The place had 2 entrances, one leading to the fort, the other to the lighthouse. The 2 attractions are linked and we can walk from one to the other without walking down the hill and up again. It might be better to start from the fort side as it is less steep.... More

The light house was lovely, on top of Cijin island, it's a bit of a walk up but once you get there, visit the fort and the light house, you will get a gorgeous view of Kaohsiung and Cijin island. Get there before 4:30 though because they close early!
