It's characterized by the simple and wild northern field landscape and is a wonderful fairyland for townsmen to have a camp, bath, and picnic. In the early eighties, the song of the Beautiful Sun Island, sung by famous singer-Zheng Xulan, displayed the taste of the Sun Island. From then on, it became very famous. The Sun Island together with some smaller islands and sandbars constitutes the Sun Island Scenic Spot. It's a good summer resort for traveling and relaxing.
