  1. Uninhabited islands near Juguang include Sheshan and Yongliu Island. In the past these were used for target practice by the ROC military but, after the end of military rule, they have gradually returned to nature. Undisturbed by man and with a plentiful supply of fish due to the island's location near the mouth of the Min River, the islands have become a perfect place for sea birds to feed and breed.Sheshan has been declared a tern reserve. Resident birds can also be regularly spotted around Dapu and Fuzheng settlements in the Juguang area.Juguang people joke that there fridge is the seashore. Their “fridge” is the tidal belt on Yongliu Island.
  2. When the tide is out many "special product" local seafoods can be found, leading it to be called Juguang’s seafood farm. In addition, recent year efforts to restore lilies and other native plants have had some success. In March when the callery pears bloom and in May when the lilies bloom the islands are painted white, creating a lovely scene.
