- A lovely place to explore at any time, this is a superb spot to catch the sunset since it's on the most western point of Little Kinmen.
- Although the fort itself and adjoining tunnel are closed, the observation pavilion is well worth the visit.
- The boardwalks offer views of adjoining cliffs, beaches and bays.
Shaxi Fort's on a cape at the end of a long road off the bicycle path near Qingyuan Lake (Qīngyuǎn hú). The extra time and energy it takes to get here is well-rewarded with diverse scenic views.
The nicely landscaped extensive boardwalks lead you to rocks you can clamber on down by the water, a cliff edge and an observation pavilion which catches refreshingly cool sea breezes. On the pavilion, see Dadan and Erdan Islands as well as Xiamen skyscrapers through high-powered binoculars.
The soldiers stationed here spent long hours watching out for invaders from across the water. You might well want to relax here for a few hours!
