The “Sandiaojiao Lighthouse” is located at the easternmost tip of Taiwan. As a famous spot for watching the sunrise, many visitors come here to capture the “first sun light”! The lighthouse has a history for nearly one hundred years. The lighthouse is open for public visits. Inside the building, there are related equipment and information. The small alcove sitting next to the lighthouse and the installation artworks on the lawn are lovely and great for photography, making the attraction a favorite spot for wedding photography. It is noteworthy that the small viewing platform by the sea is a great location for shooting sea views! (It takes only five minutes to walk from the parking lot to the viewing platform). Please bring an umbrella and sun-blocking items when visiting the lighthouse on sunny days.

Santiago Lighthouse opening times: 09:00-16:00, Tuesdays-Sundays, (closed on Sundays). Don’t overlook the calendar!
