Must see · Island · Wildlife Area
Explore Sanxiantai, a small island off the coast of Taiwan, connected to the mainland by a long footbridge. The island consists of three large rocks and its name translates to "platform of the three immortals," in reference to China’s eight immortals, three of which are said to have landed on this island. The island itself has a beach that stretches for 10 km (6 mi) and offers fantastic views of the scallop-designed footbridge. Follow a network of footpaths to enjoy scenic views, then climb to the top of the lighthouse for the most rewarding of the island's vistas. The surrounding sea has an abundance of marine life, perfect for scuba diving fanatics. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Taitung trip simple and quick.
