The Small Qingdao Island

The Small Qingdao Island is located inside the Jiaozhou Gulf, it is a very small island, which together with Zhan Bridge are the symbols of Qingdao City.

It also has the name of 'Qin Island', because its shape is like an old qin—a kind of music instrument. When Germans and Japanese occupied the area including this small island, it got two different names. The local residents called it 'The Small Qingdao Island'. Since liberation, the Island was used to be used by detachment of yacht of navy of China. As early as the beginning of 1930's, the Small Qingdao Island was opened as a park and since the summer of 1988, it has become a spot for tour of Qian Sea.

The Island is very close to Zhan Bridge. From Zhan Bridge, you can tell that this is an isolated island, 720 meters from the coast. Standing on the Huilan Pavilion on the Zhan Bridge, you can see clearly the beautiful scenery in the Island. The elevation of this lovely island is only about 17 meters with an area of only 120 square centimeters. The most noticeable building is a white octagonal light house constructed by German in 1900, standing high among beautiful rock and green trees. It was made of white marble. It has a height of about 15 meters. Inside of the house, on the top, there is a reflector with a range of 12 sea miles to give directions to all the ships passing here. After liberation, the tower was repaired and restored. When it becomes dark, 'Light's reflection drifts around the Qin Island' is one of the ten best scenes in Qingdao

On the north side of the Island there is a levee. Now it has become the stopping place for yachts on the sea. Lu Xun Park lies to the east of this Island. Many flowers and trees for watching during the spring, the summer and the autumn like black pines and oriental cherries are planted fully on the Island.
