Penghu County, Taiwan –


Departing from North Sea Visitor Centre, you definitely will pass this white sand island on the way to Jibei Islet. There is one housing stood on this small island. The clear, blue water surface sparkles under the dazzling sun. Coming to this small white sand island, you definitely will fall in love with such picturesque and postcard-like stunning scenery right away! This white sand island called “Sianjiao” Islet is the one and only uninhabited pearl shell sand island in Taiwan.

From the first impression, it is really hard to associate this beautiful small island with the word “sian”, literally “dangerous” in Chinese. Sianjiao Islet won its name due to the vast amount of submerged reefs around the islet. The islet itself is composed by shell sand and the entire terrain is quite flat as well. However, because the peripheral sea areas of the islet are suffused with coral reefs, submerged reefs had caused many vessels and ship ran aground in the early days, so that is how it got such terrified name.

Although Sianjiao Islet may be dangerous, ships no longer have the problems of ship grounding with the help of modern technology. Sianjiao Islet in 1990 has become one of the most important tourist attractions in Penghu. The entire islet covers an area of 4 hectares, and the main and only building on the islet was built in 2003 during the drama filming. This building called “8 Centimetres Blue” has become the most noticeable landmark of Sianjiao Islet.

If you come to Sianjiao Islet during the day, you can engage in a wide range of water activities such as swimming, snorkelling, diving, strolling along the sand beach, etc. In the evening, tourists can have fun in BBQ and night fishing. At last, you lie down on the beach stargazing and listening to the sound of ocean waves. Sianjiao Islet surely will be special and unforgettable holiday vacation choice!

【澎湖東北海】白沙之島夜未眠 險礁

許展彰/澎湖縣

  自澎湖北海遊客服務中心遊艇碼頭出發,前往北海吉貝島的航程上,一定會經過這麼座白沙之島。小小的島嶼上矗立著一座斜背式房屋,似水的藍在耀眼的陽光下閃閃發亮,和白沙、海水交織成如風景明信片般的動人風景。這座白沙之島的芳名名為「險礁」,正是全國唯一一座的珍珠貝殼沙無人島。

  如此美麗的小島得名「險礁」,第一印象實在很難讓人把她和「險」字放在一起聯想。險礁得名如此,主要是因為周邊海域地形所致。險礁本島由貝殼沙所組成,全島地貌相當平坦;但島嶼周圍海域暗礁星羅棋布,早期航海儀器尚未發達之前,暗礁常導致鄰近船隻觸礁發生意外,所以得名「險礁」。

  險礁雖險,但今日船隻航海已有衛星導航等航海儀器輔助,已在1990年代成為澎湖北海發展觀光旅遊的重點島嶼之一。全島約四公頃的面積,主要建築物即為2003年因拍攝偶像劇─原味的夏天,劇後所留下的劇屋。當年電視劇拍攝之前,劇組人員即和島上唯一一家經營水上休閒活動的業主溝通協調,達成業主協助劇屋搭建、劇後劇屋所有權歸業主所有的共識。時至今日,這名為「八釐米蔚藍」的偶像劇屋,便成為險礁島上最引人注目的地標。

  歸因早期漁業權相關法令的規定,險礁島上大多數的土地使用權屬於名揚育樂開發有限公司,該公司並成為島上唯一從事水上休閒活動的業者。多年來在業者的經營規劃下,除了原先的八釐米蔚藍外,小木屋、廚房、水上活動休息區、碼頭等等硬體設施逐漸齊全,2007年開始搭配業者推出的夜遊險礁行程並可住宿在險礁島上過夜,水、電供應無虞,餐食部分也由業者提供。自此夜遊險礁島成為澎湖旅遊的新玩法之一。

  白天來到險礁島,恣意在沁涼海水下暢遊水上活動、浮潛戲水、漫步沙灘欣賞螺貝;黃昏時登島享受碳烤BBQ,體驗夜釣小管、夜捕丁香等休閒漁業活動,最後在星空、漁火和海潮聲相伴下欣然入睡。澎湖夏季限定的無人島假期,險礁島會是相當特別而令人難忘的渡假選擇。
