The Matsu National Scenic Area Administration began operating on Nov. 26, 1999, charged with the area’s planning and management. Matsu’s traditional Eastern Fujian-style stone houses, sea-sculpted rock formations, and soaring flocks of terns together create an otherworldly Shangri-la, and the authentic Fuzhou cuisine exerts a unique allure that attracts romantics and gourmands alike. Visit these islands in any season and you will find mountain slopes filled with a riot of blossoming wildflowers, making you feel like you are on a seaborne flower garden with all of your troubles left far behind.

Please Note
  1. March-May is the foggy season; flights and voyages are uncertain. Check with your airline or ferry company.
  2. Inter-island travel is mainly by boat. Sea conditions are uncertain; watch the daily sailing reports, and arrive at the wharf 10 minutes before boarding.
  3. Most activities are on land; wear comfortable clothing, protect against sunburn in summer, and watch out for strong winds in winter.
  4. Take care for your own safety. Water supply is limited; please use it sparingly.
  5. Do not point your camera directly at military installations.
  6. If you take plants or animals off the islands, please apply to the relevant agency for a certificate of origin or a statement.
