One ☝️ of monument for old city and history. Small island 🌴 with lighthouse. It was closed when we wanted to walk around. Neighbouring with naval museum and connected with main land with road. Connected to seaside path from downtown, eventually take the bus 🚌

You can circumnavigate the island on foot in well under an hour. But there are paths leading up and around the lighthouse, beautiful views of the city, and the historic ships of the naval museum in the small bay.

The only disappointment is that there used to be a wonderful coffee shop on the island that always put a ribbon on the day. But the island is still a nice place for picnics and leisurely strolls.

There is nothing to do here so only come if you have nothing to do. Buses are not allowed to come right to the entrance so get a car or a small bus to save yourself a long walk. The island is very small so you can walk around it a few times. There is remnants of a Japanese WWII torpedo ammo dump. You can get a nice view of the surrounding bays.

So, I wanted to walk to the island because I am alone and don't have access to a vehicle. I walked for a long distance to get to the entrance to be turned away. They stated no walking to the island.

It's really tiny, so walk around a few times, sit on a bench and enjoy the view. Not a must, but fun.

I really enjoyed walking around this little island, enjoying the quietness (not many people there) and with the waves splashing onto the rocks and getting the smell of the ocean. I am not sure if there are always "swells" or waves, though. I was disappointed not to enter the torpedo depot under the island. Memorable visit.

Small island attached to the mainland by a causeway. To walk over the causeway there is a small fee of ¥10 per person.

The island as its name implies is pretty small and you can circumnavigate it in 10 minutes. There is a lighthouse on top of the hill in the centre of the island; don't think you can go in. A statue of a lady with a lyre is the main landmark.

Not much to do here but relax and take in the views of the Yellow Sea, the Naval Museum, Zhan Qiao and the city skyline across the water.

Can be combined with a visit to the Naval Museum, Luxin Park, Little Fish Hill and the 1st Bathing Beach.

This was a lovely walk across the causeway and around the island. Well worth the very small entrance fee and great views across the harbour.

This tiny island a ways in the distance from the Zhanqiao Island is the pearl of the east for me because it was small but exquisite. Unlike the Sun Island in Harbin, this is on the ocean, on the yellow sea man! You can see the pagoda and the small hills in the distance, marvelous!

During the summer, you have to pay, but we went in the winter and it was free. It's a pretty nice view of the rest of Qingdao, and there's a couple cool things on the island, but not much.
