Xiao Liuqiu Island

Xiao Liuqiu is a small island off the coast of Donggang City in Pingtung County. It's a popular place for swimming and snorkeling, thanks in large part due to the many green sea turtles that call the reefs around the island home. Turtles can be seen all yea, and all around the island, but are most reliably spotted at Vase Rock and Beauty Cave beaches, which I've shown on the map.

The ferry to Baisha Port will take you almost directly to Vase Rock, with easy walking distance of Beauty Cave Beach. The boat leaves from Donggang Harbor and costs 380nt round trip. You can find a full schedule for the boat here. The island is very small though. No matter where you are you can get to any other point on the island easily by bicycle, walking, or rented electric scooter.

We are guests in the turtles home. Respect them by only watching and taking photos, don't touch them.
