As Dongju’s most famous intertidal zone, Xiniu Islet is made up of sand, mud, and gravel beaches, as well as some reef rocks. The islet acquired its name from its shape - a rhino. Between the tides, the islet separates and connects itself with the main island - a land-tied islet it is.
Standing between a river and the sea, Xiniu Islet produces plenty of shells and seafood. Their range is wide and their taste is great. What a natural storage of food!
