If you want to scuba dive the island is great. We were not able to find some snorkling companies, but to be fair we had little time to search. The island also has some nice scenic spots.

The snorkeling is so awesome! It is easy to travel around the island by scooter, go to wherever you want, stop at any spot you like, totally free! It is a pity that I didn't see the Milky Way after coming out from the hot spring, because my friends were so enjoy scooting fast that they couldn't stop to see... More

To get to Green Island from Taipei, you have to first take a 5-hour train ride to Taitung City and then take an hour boat ride to the island.My friends and I (mostly me I guess) were really excited about the boat ride because apparently it was crazy. If you go on Youtube you can find videos of people filming... More

Compared to Orchid Island, Green Island caters much more to tourists, and there's no shortage of places to eat and shop. Activities on land and in the sea abound, such as snorkelling, cycling and hiking, and the natural saltwater hot spring is a lovely place to relax after a long walk or cycle ride.

The island is small but welcoming, and with beautiful scenery. You can do some small hikes, and enjoy the hot natural spa. It is specialy good for scuba diving. Only thing is that you need to ride a bike to properly enjoy it. It might be too much with a bike (free rental in tourist office) and public transport is... More

Our aim of visiting this island can be summarised in one word - snorkelling. We wanted to see the underwater world on this remote little island off the south east coast of Taiwan. We spent 3 days there. Transportation There are two ways to get there - a 50 minute boat ride or a 10 minute airplane ride. Most people... More

The snorkeling is pretty good, but there's nothing else to do and nothing to eat. Bring playing cards and PB&J. The hot springs are dirty and ghetto. If you want to dive, that's fine, but that's all they have. You can't even swim in the ocean without your feet and legs being sliced up by the coral and rocks. Not... More

I took the ferry on November 2015 for a day trip, and it was beautiful. We biked around the island, stopped in the hot springs (and were the only ones thanks to the low-season).
