The plants growing in and around the fort were used for defensive purposes.
There are steps down to a beautiful clean sandy beach with a good view of the main Kinmen island.
Chiang Kai Shek's son Chiang Ching-Kuo came here in 1958 during the 823 Battle.
This small fort was an important place during wartime: it was the garrison designated to monitor operations on the water between the main island of Kinmen and Little Kinmen.
It has 24 machine gun and rifle firing positions. You can imagine the frontline tension in the tiny spaces once packed with soldiers.
