九孔瀑布 | Chixi Rock Waterfall
Chixi Rock Waterfall, located in Penghu’s Xiyu township is one of the most scenic spots.
An abandoned fish pond sitting next to natural basalt sculptures in the shape of six-sided columns is one of the natural perfect photo-op spots on the island.
Well, how to take a perfect photo here? When the tide is low, you can stand in the middle of the fish pond and have someone taking pictures from the outer ring.

東石環保公園 | Dongshicunhuanbao Park
There is a maze made of porous coral stones in Dongshicunhuanbao Park near the beach and Penghu Airport. From afar, it looks like the mysterious ruins left by aliens, attracting many tourists to come and take pictures.
If you want to capture the entire maze and the distant sea, be sure to bring along a wide-angle lens and a selfie stick. It’s recommended to wear bright colors for perfect pictures.
