Currently being repaired due to damage caused by a recent typhoon, the Oyster Shell Island is closed for now. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

At Dapeng Bay, there is this little island which grows bigger by the year, because every visitor contributes something it needs. It is called the “Oyster Shell Island.”

Covering 7,150 square meters of land, Oyster Shell Island is almost entirely made of oyster shells accumulated throughout the years. In the past, 82% of the 532-hectare Dapeng Bay were used to grow oysters on racks. The bay’s oyster farmers threw away so many oyster shells that the unique Oyster Shell Island as we see today was born.

The island can go under water surface when there is a high tide. Only the platform set up by the Administration floats by the side. Don’t be sad if you happen to visit the island at high tides. Make sure your shoes are strong enough to keep you from being hurt by sharp oyster shells and then you may take a slow walk in the water. Around the island are old oyster cages and racks which remind people of the bay’s fish culture industry’s golden years. You are cordially invited to explore this part of the bay’s past.
