Introduction

Highlights
- At low tide, you can walk to this islet on a slab stone path.
- Only 500 sq meters, it won't take you long to explore. But it has a special atmosphere…
- The giant oystermen sculptures along the path pay tribute to one of Kinmen's traditional occupations, which still flourishes today.

Jiangong Islet
"Oystermen" was designed by Finnish architect Marco Casagrande in 2013 as part of a Kinmen County Sculpture Festival.  Made of sand-blasted stainless steel, the figures stand 6 meters tall. When the tide is at its highest point, the "Oystermen" appear to be walking on water.
Jiangong Islet
In 1949, soldiers were stationed on this small islet in order to defend the waterway between Little Kinmen and the main island of Kinmen. Take time to imagine their life here…

You might also enjoy looking down and around at the rich biodiversity in this intertidal zone.
Jiangong Islet
The tall statue on the island is Zheng Chenggong, the famous military leader, who's facing his hometown in Fujian Province across the waters.

    Statue of Koxinga

    5 2018-06

    The island is only accessible during low tide, preferably in the morning (you may check the recommended time of low tide everyday from the Kinmen tourism website). The Statue of Koxinga, aka Zheng Cheng-gong was erected on the island. Dadeng Island, Xiamen, PRC could be seen at the far north. The island has toilets. I will recommend travelers wear slippers if possible to walk to the island as the pathway is kind of muddy, and there are a few taps for washing foot. It's a nice place to visit in Kinmen.

    The most surreal experience on Kinmen

    5 2018-05

    We went at 730 AM for low tide, and walked across the paver stone path to the islet. About half way there, the loudspeakers on shore started to play soothing music. We got out there, and were amazed at the views, and the warrior statue and the remains of the fortress used to protect Kinmen. It was an experience that I will never forget.

    Visit only during low tide

    4 2017-10

    1-hour short visit Woke up at six in the morning and arrived the island at seven; Quite a few groups of people visiting the island; Beautiful scenery with fresh air in the morning; Calm and quiet place with non-commercialised war ruins; Warm reminder: 1. aware of the tide up at anytime, suggest to ask local advice; 2. no wearing new shoes as the you will walk in the mud and sand along the route 3. bring cameras - good place for pictures

    退潮時出現陸路可步行前往的島礁

    4 2016-05

    無論何時都可前往,但如果想要登上小島嶼,那就要看潮汐表囉。沿路路標明確,停放車輛的指示也很明確,入口處就有月份對照潮汐時間的說明牌,島上依然有個小間為陸軍使用。目前無常駐軍在上,但的確還是有哨兵簽到巡視唷。島上有廁所,但請大家節約用水。攻島要記得時間,以免漲潮後就只能在島上等待下次退潮才能回來囉。If you want to step on this tiny island, beware of the tides. The trail only shows up about two hours a time, three of four times during the daytime. There's a tide chart at the enterance.It's a really tiny island,has a small house for the army to use, which now is for storage mainly. There used to have guards on it.
