Sanzhi / Shimen District
Neighboring mountains and sea shores, the natural environment is beautiful with natural Baisha (White Sand) Bay formed by Cape Fugui and Cape Linshanbi. The coast is clear and shallow as a mirror with dunes dotting the beach. The uncanny natural sceneries are a result of early volcanic eruptions. The running lavas cooled to form the unique trench landscape of the famous Laomei Green Reef in April and May, within
Shimen. The rock trenches are covered in green algae, forming breathtaking emerald green wonders and landscapes. Sanzhi, with its crescent-shaped beach coastal scenery, crystal blue ocean and clean white clouds creates a south island atmosphere unique to summer. Taste the delicious meals on banks in nearby feature cafes and enjoy the soft blow of light winds. Every year during autumn harvest, the “Water Bamboo Festival” is held for the Sanzhi feature farm produce. There will be DIY experiences, and kitchen events acting as a farmer for the day, not only getting to know the Sanzhi water bamboo but also tasting creative dishes!
