About 4 kilometers north to the Puqian Bay, 10 meters under the sea, there is a submarine village known as “Renchun Village”. Relics of village courtyards, family houses are dimly recognizable under the sea. A memorial archway also stands there in the sea, with fishes swimming around it, just like the scene described in the traditional myths of the Dragon Palace. There is a sea trench which is about 10 meters deep and 20 meters wide under the sea across the Dongzhai Port. To the east of the trench, there is a stone bridge, still lying across the sand track. Visitors can dive into the sea with the water lung and take a visit to these relics, either for relaxation or for exploration. It will be quite a memorable experience.
A legend goes that it's the Dragon Emperor who burst into fury, flooded 72 villages in the nearby and made this area a mystery and attractive bay. In fact, the view was formed during an earthquake in 1605. A strong submarine earthquake attacked the area, leaving 72 villages under the sea, and they are known as the Submarine Villages now. The earthquake attacked resulting in 72 villages submerged about 3 to 4 meters under the sea occupying an area of more than 100 sq km. In May or June, when the tides ebb away, visitors may take boat to the area and the relics are there right under the sea. Time brings a great change to the world, and these villages are still there, which will give you an impressive feeling of the power of the nature.
