Ci Lake Triangle Fortress is located in Ci Lake Coastal Area. The minefield encircled by barbed wires on the beach and the trenches surrounding the fortress were defense measures against invaders. Covered in camouflage, Ci Lake Triangle Fortress used to accommodate stationed soldiers. Each point of the invincible triangle military architecture is equipped with a lookout post and embrasures. There is also a checkpoint on top of the fortress.
As the tension of civil war gradually fades, the Triangle Fortress has been repurposed. It now features tourism, culture and ecological conservation. In late spring and early summer, the bloom of Oenothera littoralis in the area attracts butterflies and blue-tailed bee-eaters, the summer migratory birds, creating a colorful seasonal scene appealing to many.

One of the many forts on KinmenCihu Triangle Fortress was one of the few dozen forts all over the island. This one had binoculars that looked towards Xiamen and Guiyu that are few kilometers away. Few old tanks and an old military speaker are also near the grounds.

Cihu Triangle Fort is a haven for bird watchersFor a building intended for destructive purposes, it is now an interesting relic of a bygone era. The internal layout of the fortress is simplistic but the dimensions can be quite limiting and cramped at the three points which once formed machine gun posts. In the central living quarters area and along the hallways, there are now information signs about the local birdlife, especially linked with aquatic birds living at the neighbouring Ci Lake. The rooftop allows for greater movement, with nice views along the beachfront across to the lake.
