It's close to Zhaishan Tunnel, so can be combined with a visit there.

Inside the tower there are some old photos of Chiang Kai-Shek's visits here.

This is a lovely picnic spot with a relaxing yet elegant feel to it.


Gugang Tower
The tower was built in 1964, designed by an artist, temple restoration expert and antique collector from Damsui, Taipei named Zhuang Wu-nan. Climb up to the 3rd floor for panoramic views of the lake, and refreshing breezes in the summer.

Gugang Lake
Gugang Lake is Kinmen's last remaining natural lake. Surrounded by hills and willow trees, it's habitat for aquatic birds. You might also spot the distinctive brown-striped Eurasian hoopoe on the grass between the lake and the tower.

    Pleasant lake, but tiny and not much to see

    3 2015-01

    There isn't much to see at this lake at all and it can be easily skipped. At the same time, it's on the way to Zhaishan Tunnel from Shuitou, so it's not inconvenient to stop here for just a few minutes to take a short break. The area around the lake has some good traditional Fujian homes and a colorful empty temple, plus there are some trails nearby to some stone inscriptions. This lake also has the distinction of being the only natural lake on Jinmen Island, though that does *not* make it more beautiful or important than the man-made ones.
