Cijin Island, Kaohsiung, Taiwan

Cijin Island is a thin island in Kaohsiung Harbour which serves as a natural breakwater.

The ferry over to the peninsula costs NT$25 (€0,72 / $0.85) and takes about 10 minutes.

The Kaohsiung Lighthouse sits on Cijin.  It was built in 1883 and restored by the Japanese in 1918.

There are a number of temples and markets on Cijin.  It's a popular place for fresh seafood.

The biggest draw for me were the palm trees and a shot at some beach time.
