Penghu County, Taiwan –


Yuanbeiyu Islet is situated east of Citou Village in Baisha Township, which is a ten-minute ferry ride from the East Sea. It was named so because it is shaped like a seashell. Currently there are only few people living on the island and the population is mostly elders. Due to the development of Penghu tourism, the number of travelers has gradually increased in recent years.

The entire Yuanbeiyu Islet is a hill. During the summer, you can see the islet is covered in green. The east coast of Yuanbeiyu Islet possesses the most well-known basalt landscapes, including the stone pen, stone ink holder and stone pleated skirt. Visitors who participate in the cruise tour will be able to see these fascinating and interesting basalt formations.

When the tides ebb, a shallow water path will appear between Yuanbeiyu Islet and Shagang Village. The water path is a total of five kilometers, which Yuanbeiyu ancestors used to rely on for outside contact. Right now it has become a popular trail for tourists to engage in intertidal zone activities. If you want to climb up to the hill watching beautiful scenery, all you need to do is to follow the stone trail next to Yuanbei Elementary School. As you reach the lighthouse, you will be able to overlook Pengpeng Beach, Niaoyu Islet, Jishan Islet, Dinggou Islet, Shiaobaisha, Nanmiangua Islet and other small islets. If you climb up from the other side of village, you can enjoy the stunning moment of intertwined red tile houses from the hillside. Unlike other islets, Yuanbeiyu Islet is a serene and peaceful island where buries the distant memory of this fishing village.

【澎湖東北海】遺落海天之間的寧靜島 員貝嶼

許展彰/澎湖縣

  員貝嶼─這座位處白沙鄉歧頭村,船行十分鐘內即可抵達的東海島嶼,因形似一枚貝殼而得名。島上現存人家不多,且以老一代的年長者居多,青壯身影已難看見。近年來因發展觀光,漸漸增多了旅人的行跡。

  全為丘陵地形的員貝嶼,夏日時節綠草如茵覆蓋於島嶼之上,東邊海崖擁有全島最著名的玄武岩地質景觀─石筆、石硯、百褶裙柱狀玄武岩,參與業者的巡航遊程便能從海上欣賞這些著名景點,饒富賞遊趣味。

  適逢大退潮的時間點,在員貝嶼和湖西鄉沙港村之間會出現一條淺水步道,全長近5公里的步道曾為員貝嶼先民賴以對外交通的海上古道,同時也為時下遊客體驗潮間帶活動的熱門步道地點。島上房舍大多集中於港口鄰近平地,而有限的農地範圍則是座落在島中央的凹地地帶。想要登高一覽澎湖東北海的風光景致?只管循著員貝國小旁的石板步道前進,到達燈塔的位置即可俯瞰澎澎灘、鳥嶼、雞善、錠鉤、小白沙、南面掛嶼鄰近諸島,歷歷可辨。若由村落一方的步道拾級而上,只消走到半山腰回頭望,那村落櫛比鱗次的紅瓦厝所交織而成的經典畫面,同樣相當令人難忘。

  澎湖東海員貝嶼,從港口開始處處透露一著種特別的寧靜氣息。相較於鳥嶼、吉貝旅遊旺季時的人聲鼎沸,這裡的丘陵,這裡的村落,這裡斑駁的牆瓦,這裡一望無際的遼闊─幽幽的,彷彿連風都在訴說,有關於這島遙遠的漁村記憶。(攝影/許展彰)
