*Guishan Island*
Guishan IslandAs soon as the train exits Caoling Tunnel, tourists will glimpse their first view of Turtle Island, floating upon the ocean surface. As the train tracks curve about, the view of Turtle Island will vary, so keep your eyes glued! Turtle Island, also known as Turtle Mountain Islet, is located 10 kilometers east of the Touchen Town coastline. It is a volcanic island located within the ocean, named for its similarity to a floating turtle. The island is 3.3 kilometers wide from east to west and 1.7 kilometers long, coming to a total area of 2.85 kilometers squared, with a total coastline of approximately 10 kilometers. However, even with its small size, there are steep cliffs, active hot springs, hills and peaks, erosion caves, lakes, cold springs, rare cliff vegetation and a rich ocean ecology. With the erosion of ocean water and the rise and fall of the tide, Turtle Island is indeed a beautiful gem in the ocean.

According to records, the first residents of the island arrived from Fujian and Taiwan during the reign of Qing Emperor Guangxu. In 1977, the residents of Turtle Island decided to move together to the Gueishandao Community located in Dashi Neighborhood, Touchen Town, and allow the island to become a restricted area with only soldiers stationed by the military. On August 1st, 2000, the island was officially opened to tourists, and the Northeast Coast Administrative Center began the planning, development, and management of this island. With its unique, rich and relatively untouched ecological resources, the administrative center decided to designate it as an outer seas ecological park. This not only added a new recreational spot for the Northeast Coast, but also encouraged the development of the marine tourism industry.

Turtle Island is open to tourists beginning from the 1st of March to November the 30th, from 9AM~4PM. During June, July and August, the hours are extended from 9AM~5PM.
