It is a nice park full of history. It is worth visiting if you go to Xiamen. There are a lot of Chinese Banyan trees. Once you finish visiting the Fort, you can go to the beach next to it and walk along the coast...More

It would be interesting for those, who like old cannons. For all others there would be nothing special - a bit of history, statues, cannons. The fortress was build a hundred years ago, so it does not look old. The entrance fee is 25 yuan....More

The port on the island is facing the mainland. I suppose the cruise ship terminal is also there (Donggang Rd.), then it is about 10km to the Hulishan Fort. May take up to 30 minutes depending on the traffic (by taxi).
