    Huching Island

    by sunnywong Written Feb 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: The Huching Island is about one nautical miles from Tungpan Island. The center of the island is low and flat while basalt rock pillars rise high on the east and west coasts. At low tides, a view of the sea catches the shallow, tranquil and clear sea water. Thus the name of "Clear Water of Tiger Well", once named one of the eight famous scenic spots of Penghu.
