An underwater excursion between the reefs
Once you arrive by ferry at the Baishawei Fishing Harbor in Little Liuqiu, visit one of the scooter rentals and start exploring. With a scooter, you can easily go around the island and capture all its unique scenery with your own eyes, including Huapingyan (Vase Rock), Duziping intertidal zone and the island’s mystery snorkeling spots.
If you are lucky, you might get a close encounter with sea turtles! But watch out, you could face a fine for touching them. When the sun sets, enjoy a breezy summer twilight on the island.
