Situated in the middle of the Taiwan Strait, Penghu consists of 64
islands of different sizes. Because of the flat and seldom varying terrain, the
differences among creatures in islands are less and natural resources are rather
limited. However, the complicated coastlines, and the gigantic basalt columns
and the specific resources of fauna and flora all promote Penghu into an
international-class tourism spot.Penghu is the stopover spot for migrating
birds. Spring and autumn are the seasons when migratory birds arrive in Penghu.
Every summer, more than ten thousand terns breed on Cat Island. Wangan Island is
also famous for green turtles laying eggs in the sand. Therefore, the government
designated "Seabird Reservation Area" and "Green Turtle Egg Laying Habitat
Reservation Area" to protect terns and green turtles. Chishan Island, Tingko
Island, and Little Baisha Island are also designated as "Basalt Natural
Reservation Areas" for the spectacular basalt scenery.In addition, the
specialties of the Penghu seashores, whales, flora and precious ancient trees
foster abundant natural resources and history as well as increase the Penghu
vitality and impression.
