Jiangong Islet Webcam, Kinmen County

When is an island not an island? When it’s the Jiangong Islet and the tide is out. At low tide the Jiangong Islet becomes part of the larger Kinmen Island and it’s possible to walk from one to the other across a causeway. When the tide is high the causeway submerges and the islet, which is located in the mouth of the Wujiang River, regains its island status

Jiangong is a miniscule patch of land that covers no more than five-hundred square metres of Taiwanese territory, but it’s not without its merits. They’re mostly a giant-sized statue of a popular Ming dynasty leader called Koxinga, a scenic viewpoint and a few trees. Click onto this cam at the right time of day and you’ll see folks lining up along the shoreline. No, they’re not desperately waiting for the tide to turn, but for the sun to start to go down. Jiangong might not be massively impressive as far as islands go, but the sun setting behind it certainly is.
