Island · Landmark
Guishan Island boasts Taiwan's only active volcano. Named for its close resemblance to a floating sea turtle, the 2.85 sq km (1.1 sq mi) island sits atop a stratovolcano rising from the sea floor. It was originally home to fishermen before being used as a military base in 1977; it opened as a tourist attraction in 2000. Access the island by taking a boat, in fact, watch for dolphins in the area as you go. On the island you can soothe your muscles in active hot springs, climb up steep hills and cliffs, and take in sights of the island's rich plant life.
