An Isolated and Serene Crescent Bay
Yuguang Island, connected to the bustling Anping District by the Yuguang Bridge, is formerly known as San Kunshen(三鯤鯓). In the past, fishing boats lit lamps at night to attract fish, and when you look from afar, the dark sea is covered with dazzling fishing lights, thus the place earned the name "Yuguang Island". There is even an auspicious saying that "the half-moon sinks in the river when fishing fires are lit". Visitors can stroll along the beach or step barefoot into the waves to feel the caress of the sea breeze and the cool seawater lapping at their ankles.
海岸線上的水泥石塊With the sunset in the distance resplendent from all angles, bathing the sky in a warm orange glow, the orange glow from the sunset tinges Crescent Bay with a long stretch of orange, and the golden sunset is clearly visible in the distance, creating a famous view.
以遠方無死角的夕陽為背景,沐浴在溫暖的橙色光輝下,夕照帶來的橙色光輝將月牙灣染成一片綿延的橘橙,遠方的金黃落日清晰可見,造就了這番著名景致。In addition to sunset photos, daytime at Yuguang Island is also quite interesting. Imagine sitting leisurely on the soft sand, looking at the azure sea and blue sky in the distance and the sparkling waters up close, the sound of the waves lapping in your ears, and breathing in the light salty smell of the sea in the air.
