A bird's eye view of Gulangyu Island, Xiamen

Gulangyu Island is separated from Xiamen by a narrow 700-metre strait known as Xiamen - Gulang Strait, so you have to take a ferry from Xiamen Ferry Terminal to reach this island. When the tides rise, the waves are heard pounding against the rock with a thunderous boom, hence it gets its present name, meaning the Isle of Thundering Waves. Attraction Intro: Gulangyu Island

Yes, there is. Gangzaihou bathing place and Gangzaihou Coastal bathing place in Gulangyu are recommended. In comparison, the latter has cleaner water.
