Gueishan ("Turtle Mountain") Island was so named because
it resembles a turtle floating in the sea. The island contains precipitous
cliffs, bubbling hot springs, high crags, sea-eroded caves, ponds, a cold
spring, unique seashore plants, and an unspoiled coastal ecology. Gueishan
Island was formally opened to tourists on August 1, 2000. The Northeast
Coast National Scenic Area is in charge of planning, development, and
operation work involving the island, which is currently being developed
as a marine ecological park. The island offers spectacular views that
change with the weather, tides, and angle.
Commonly known as the Tiangong Temple, the Cingyun Temple is dedicated
to the Jade Emperor. The temple is a center of local belief, and a festive
ceremony is held here every year on the ninth day of the first lunar month.
