Penghu County, Taiwan –


Among of other islets in East Sea of Penghu, Niaoyu Islet is considered as the biggest inhabited island and one of the most ultra-popular tourist destinations!

Heading to Niaoyu Islet, all you need to do is riding a ferry from Citou Harbour and the ferry ride takes about twenty minutes. Once the boat entering the pier, you can clearly see the islet is a traditional fish village. Many families will dry their fish on an open space under the baking sun. Sometimes, you may see local residents gathered in front their doorstep talking gossip, processing the catch, or playing board games. In recent years, Niaoyu Islet has gradually become the most popular island in the East Sea due to the input of tourism industries and the increase of a number of foreign ships.

As one of the major tourist destinations of Penghu, Niaoyu Islet possesses a relatively well-developed living function. Besides, tourists can also go on an intertidal zone tour accompanied by a local guide.

Apart from Pengpeng Beach, almost every islet in the East Sea area has its own specific basalt geological landscape and unique formation. For instance, the basalt formation on Dinggouyu Islet looks very strange, but the basalt wall on Niaoyu Islet, also known as “The Grand Canyon on the Sea” is considered as the wonder.

If you want to take a good look of fascinating basalt formations behind Niaoyu Islet, you can only see from the moving boat. The imposing basalt scenery definitely will take your breath away!

【澎湖東北海】海上大峽谷 鳥嶼玄武岩壁壯闊非凡

許展彰/澎湖縣

  澎湖東海諸島之中,鳥嶼為最大的有人島,也是旅客從事澎湖東海旅遊必然會前往造訪的人氣島嶼。

  前往鳥嶼必需從歧頭港乘船出發,大約20分鐘的船程時間即可抵達鳥嶼。船行入港,便能清楚看見這座傳統漁村的港口風貌;空地上許多人家趁著烈日當頭曬魚,島上居民們蹲坐家門前處理漁獲、閒話家常或是搭起桌子圍起方城之戰。近幾年來又因海上休閒旅遊業者的投入,港口除了漁船外增添許多業者的船隻進出、停泊的景象─說鳥嶼是澎湖東海最熱鬧的一座小島,名副其實。

  身為澎湖東海旅遊的重鎮,鳥嶼島上的生活機能相對發達。一般遊客來到鳥嶼除了徒步造訪村裡風景外,另外可以選擇在地業者的遊程配合潮汐探訪潮間帶,尋訪大自然蘊藏在鳥嶼後山裡的寶藏,進一步認識澎湖潮間帶的常見生物、體驗傳統捕魚技法「抱墩」活動等等。

  澎湖東海諸島除了澎澎灘為一沙灘島外,幾乎每一座島都有其特異的玄武岩地質景觀可供遊賞。如果說錠鉤嶼的玄武岩景為澎湖東海之「奇」,那麼鳥嶼後山素有「大峽谷」美稱的柱狀玄武岩壁,當為澎湖東海之「壯」。

  想要一覽擁有大峽谷美稱的鳥嶼後山玄武岩群,需要乘船從海上巡航才能看見。鳥嶼後山玄武岩群聳立海上,由下觀上頗有頂天之姿,加上整齊的黝黑節理羅列成群,氣勢磅礡非凡,令人難以忘懷它的壯麗姿態。

  傳統的東海漁村小島、廣衾的潮間帶、壯闊的柱狀玄武岩群─澎湖東海最熱鬧的有人島「鳥嶼」,值得規劃東海之旅的遊人細細賞遊。(攝影/許展彰)
