Kaohsiung City ─ Cijin Scenic Area
Cijin Scenic Area-
The Cijin Peninsula is a sandy islet located west of K’s port. It is about 11 km long from north to south and 20 sq feet wide. On the island, there are several attractions such as the Thienhou Temple, Chihou Shan, Cijin Lighthouse, Cijin Beach and some historical sites. The tri-saws are extremely popular here among tourists. The newly constructed tunnel connecting the island to the mainland Kaohsiung has added another attraction to Cijin Scenic Area.

Built in 1691 and located at No. 93, Miochen Street, Thienhou Temple is located devoted to the Matzu, meaning Mother Ancestor. The temple was renovated in 1928 to its present outlook. There are fine stone curving along the walls and displays of archeological remains from as early as 1889. Sandy beaches and crystal clear water have attracted hosts of vacationers to the beautiful Cijin Beach.

Soaking in the clean salt water at the beach pool, visitors will enjoy views far out to the horizon, fishing boats and the Chihou Mountain. Even when the beach pool is closed during off season, vacationers still crowd the beach.

Erected on the northern part of the Cijin Island,the Cijin Lighthouse was built in 1883 by British engineers as a military outpost during the confrontation with France. As the back of the lighthouse is a military base where entry is restricted, the lighthouse is inaccessible to commoners. However, an unobstructed view of the lighthouse is possible from the Sizih Bay across the sea.
