Jinzun Tied Island  (中文:金樽陆连岛) is a small rock formation tied to Jinzun Beach by a sandy tombolo.  This forms two beaches on either side of the Jinzun Tied Island, so regardless of wave direction, there will always be a calm beach to go swimming in.  The beach in the island's shadow is well protected from waves and currents.

In contrast to many of the surrounding beaches, the Jinzun Beach is sandy and more gradually increases in depth than many of the other beaches in this area.  On the north side of the island there is also a natural wave-formed tunnel connecting the beach to the ocean.  The water inside the tunnel is shallow, and it's a popular place to take photographs.  Around the island are many deep pools which may or may not be accessible, depending on wave size.

Further down the beach, Jinzun Beach continues for about 2km, and there is a 4WD path down to the beach on the other side, and a viewpoint from the main road in the middle.  This beach is also sandy for most of the way, and less deep than most of the surrounding beaches. This makes it an ideal place to swim, but also increases the chance for sandbars and rip currents to form, especially at low tide.  If caught in a rip current, just remember to keep calm and relax or swim perpendicular to the current, not against it.  Eventually it will give up and you can swim back to shore.
