Zhongzhu Harbor

A- A+ Print Facebook Plurk Twitter

This is the main gateway to Dongyin, and passengers entering on large ships can see the three words for “Zhongzhu Harbor” written on the stone face behind the harbor building. As they come ashore, travelers cannot miss the striped parrotfish sculpture, which is a local landmark. Dongyin is made up of granite, and its shore is lined with sea-eroded formations: cliffs, columns, caves, and the like. The coast is bounded by jagged rocks and cliffs, and different high-value fish come here to feed in each season; so fishing is popular, and Dongyin has become a rock-fishing paradise for the people of Taiwan.
