Statue of Koxinga
Jun 2018 • Couples
The island is only accessible during low tide, preferably in the morning (you may check the recommended time of low tide everyday from the Kinmen tourism website). The Statue of Koxinga, aka Zheng Cheng-gong was erected on the island. Dadeng Island, Xiamen, PRC could be seen at the far north. The island has toilets. I will recommend travelers wear slippers if possible to walk to the island as the pathway is kind of muddy, and there are a few taps for washing foot. It's a nice place to visit in Kinmen.

The most surreal experience on Kinmen
May 2018 • Business
We went at 730 AM for low tide, and walked across the paver stone path to the islet. About half way there, the loudspeakers on shore started to play soothing music. We got out there, and were amazed at the views, and the warrior statue and the remains of the fortress used to protect Kinmen. It was an experience that I will never forget.

Visit only during low tide
Oct 2017 • Couples
1-hour short visit

Woke up at six in the morning and arrived the island at seven;
Quite a few groups of people visiting the island;
Beautiful scenery with fresh air in the morning;
Calm and quiet place with non-commercialised war ruins;

Warm reminder:
1. aware of the tide up at anytime, suggest to ask local advice;
2. no wearing new shoes as the you will walk in the mud and sand along the route
3. bring cameras - good place for pictures

退潮時出現陸路可步行前往的島礁
May 2016 • Couples
無論何時都可前往,但如果想要登上小島嶼,那就要看潮汐表囉。沿路路標明確,停放車輛的指示也很明確,入口處就有月份對照潮汐時間的說明牌,島上依然有個小間為陸軍使用。目前無常駐軍在上,但的確還是有哨兵簽到巡視唷。島上有廁所,但請大家節約用水。攻島要記得時間,以免漲潮後就只能在島上等待下次退潮才能回來囉。If you want to step on this tiny island, beware of the tides. The trail only shows up about two hours a time, three of four times during the daytime. There's a tide chart at the enterance.It's a really tiny island,has a small house for the army to use, which now is for storage mainly. There used to have guards on it.

Neat little island accessible at low tide
Jul 2015 • Friends
Although there's not too much to see on this very tiny island, I found it really cool that it's only accessible at low tide (ask the information offices or check timetables!) and there's an interesting statue of the great Chinese general Koxinga (I think?). Even better in my opinion are the towering modern sculptures of oyster fisherman that wade in the water at high tide and march towards the island at low tide. You can also get get views of Kinmen, Little Kinmen, and if visibility is good, Xiamen on the other side. It shouldn't take long to walk around the whole island as it's quite small.

One of the #7 buses (*not* all of them!) drives very close to the narrow road that heads to the island. You can ask at the information desk at the Jincheng bus station which one to take. Or you can also borrow a bicycle from the bus station for free and take a relatively short ride to the island, or at least park your bike on the beach before walking on the road to the island. Oh, and as with every tourist attraction on Kinmen, this one is also free :-D
