【看CP學英文】「安心旅遊」補助專案上路後,不少人選擇離島作為旅遊地點,以「偽出國」的旅遊模式,一解防疫期間無法出國的鬱悶心情。YouTube頻道「大海旅人吳威毅」,日前來到澎湖旅遊,登上位於望安鄉旁的「將軍島」,除了一潛海底觀賞豐富的珊瑚生態外,更到島上參觀當地的閩南式建築。

Thanks to government-sponsored domestic travel subsidies, many people have quenched their thirst for traveling abroad in Taiwan’s offshore islands.

Against this backdrop, Environmental activist Wu Wei-yi (大海旅人吳威毅), a Taiwanese YouTuber, recently filmed a video to introduce Penghu’s “best-kept secret,” focusing on a tiny island called “Jiangjyun Island.”

In addition to the breathtaking coral reef under the ocean, Jiangjyun Island is renowned for its unique Fujian-style architecture.

將軍島又稱「將軍澳嶼」,因明末鄭成功派遣部下李胤將軍至此地駐守,故有此名。將軍澳嶼周圍擁有豐富的珊瑚,珊瑚覆蓋率高達98%,也被譽為「珊瑚之島」。「大海旅人吳威毅」是海上活動的熱愛者,平時分享衝浪、潛水等影片,這次他來到將軍澳嶼,以自由潛水的方式潛入海底,將海中美麗的珊瑚景色,以影片的方式與大家分享。

Jiangjyun Island” took its name from General Li Yin from the Ming dynasty who was stationed on this island, which is surrounded by an abundance of coral reefs.

The Youtuber is a big ocean lover who often posts videos about himself surfing and diving online. You can truly enjoy the stunning coral reefs around Jiangjyun Island, also called the “Island of Coral.”

島上的建築,是使用「珊瑚」堆砌而成,是當地的特色之一,島民就地取材,將死掉的珊瑚作為磚瓦,一塊塊堆砌成牆。影片最後,威毅也對著鏡頭說:「這個(將軍澳嶼)真的是我目前去過,台灣最秘境的一個地方。」

One of the main features of Jiangjyun Island is its buildings, which were built using corals. The locals drew on local resources and replaced bricks with dead corals.

The Youtuber concluded the video by noting that he considered this place “the most mysterious place in Taiwan.”

影片播出後,許多網友也讚嘆這美麗的島嶼,「好美的地方」、「想不到台灣海峽可以有這樣的珊瑚啊」、「你的影片讓我愛上大海,也讓我了解環保的重要」。也有網友在下方留言呼籲,希望大家要愛惜台灣的美麗生態,保護環境,讓台灣的自然美景能永續留存。
