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...More

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...More

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.

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...More

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.
