A Trip to Cijin (Qijin) island, Kaohsiung - Photos and Images

Cijin or Qijin is an island in Kaohsiung. It used to be connected to the mainland of Taiwan at the southern tip, but in year 1967, the government broke the link from the main land, so as to build the second entry point to Port of Kaohsiung.

The island is often flooded with visitors on the weekend.  They either take the ferry or underground tunnel to go from mainland to the island.  To take the ferry, you can depart from the Gushan Ferry Terminal.  The view from this terminal is spectacular !

The black beach in Cijin Island

The beach in Cijin was slowly washed away by waves.  So the government built the wave barrier near the beach, and according to the locals, it did help to preserved the beach.   

During the Morocco Typhoon in 2009, this beach was flooded with so many woods and tree trunks from unknown source. The community gathered and removed the woods, so that the beach is available to public again.
