Liuqiu is easily accessible from Kaohsiung and offers an ideal retreat from city life. Whether you go to Liuqiu for a day trip or stay for a week, this little island has plenty to offer to keep you entertained. Liuqiu is Taiwan’s only large coral island so it’s popular for snorkelling, offering good chances of swimming with sea turtles. Its interesting rock formations provide a stunning setting to view the sunset, and it is probably one of the best sunsets on offer in Taiwan. Renting a bicycle or scooter for the duration of your stay would be a great way to get around and explore the island. The more adventurous traveller could explore the narrow passages of Black Dwarf Cave.
