Day trip

Came to visit this island with the hospitality of one of my local friend. We reached in time to catch the 10am ferry across the island. After that we drive around and had our lunch at the local seafood restaurant over looking the sea with fishermen off loading their catch of the day. We also visited the turtle farm and the lighthouse. Overall it was a good day of sightseeing. The volcanic structures of the rock is amazing. One can chose to stay a night on the island with cheap accommodation. Is better to drive your own vehicle to go across.

Naozhou Island (In ancient times, it went by the name Mang.), the largest volcanic island in China, Zhanjiang. It is located about 40 kilometers southeast of Zhanjiang City, in Guangdong Province. It covers an area of about 56 square kilometres. It is northwest of the South China Sea and to the east overlooks the Pacific Ocean. About 200,000 to 500,000 years ago, submarine volcanic eruption formed Naozhou Island.

There is a small fishing vessel factory on the island. They maintain the centuries-old traditional craft.

We enjoyed walking on the beach and the morning breeze, and along the black lava/volcanic rock. Sunny mornings on the island are great.

Naozhou lighthouse, with the London lighthouse and the Cape of Good Hope lighthouse, are known as the three major lighthouses in the world. It is also one of the only two crystal grinding mirror lighthouse in the world. It was built in France in 1899.

The island is a great place to stay for days of eating. very tasty, fresh seafood, and at very inexpensive prices. The island is renowned for its seafood, such as abalone, lobster, crab, and many fishes. During the non-fishing season, the locals dried fish. My photos include two of fish being dried.

Its tourist attractions also include Nayanhai Beach, ideal natural ocean baths, and a farmers market where you can buy fresh seafood, and island-grown fruits, and vegetables.
