Just beautiful islands - amazed at how clear the waters are and how much there is to see on each island. Great walks and good food everywhere. Highly recommend a visit for a few days minimum

Early ferry to southernmost island for snorkelling before heading back to see an ancient village on another island and then lunch in makong. Hectic but fun. Don't bother squid fishing in May. No squid for whole boat or the previous one.

In terms of geological formation, Penghu Island and its surrounding islets are truly exceptional. You truly need to see them for yourself. Summer time is definitely the best time to visit this place. When there are more tourists, eateries will open and mini cruise ships would take you to far away places. However, in winter, the main Penghu Island is... More

We loved it. we went there twice and enjoyed it every time .. Great place to go, just between China and Taiwan. First we went just my wife and I, then with 2 other couples, it was fun both times. Great fish and the vibe is so sweet and relax. Worth a trip any time.

Beaches are white sand and crystal blue waters - and of course mostly deserted. Aimen beach is really nice, and has an outdoor all you eat BBQ restaurant on the beach!
