  Walk to the lighthouse & artillery battery
by DSwede

Cijin island is a small island which among other things, provides the protective barrier for the Kaohsiung Harbor. (See my two lead pictures on my Kaohsiung page).

The island is also home to a strong fishing community and has some great seafoods (see my restaurant tip).

But the island also has a historic lighthouse, World War era military bunkers and artillery battery, as well as a nice promenade walk along the coast and cliff line. All are within easy walking distance of the Cijin Ferry terminal.

When you arrive at the ferry terminal, look at the tourist map and begin walking.

Address: Cijin Island
Directions: Take the ferry from either Love Pier or Gushan Terminal. From there, look at the signboard for reference, but all is within walking distance.
