Xiyu Lighthouse

Xiyu Lighthouse, also known as Yuwengdao Lighthouse, is a lighthouse located at the south of Xiyu. Since it is relatively taller than surrounding islets, it became an important indication of shipping route since hundreds of years ago. There are a number of mist-cannons built next to the lighthouse since the Qing Dynasty and an exhibition room. Tourists can admire the breath-taking scenery of sunset on top of the lighthouse.
