There are many relics in the island, such as the mysterious Tangwang Cave, Jiuding Stone, Babao colored glaze well, the holy water basin, the Shifo temple, etc.

In the south of the island, there are granites with various shapes. Among them, the spots of “Haihu stone carving” and “granite carving of the sea” are quite famous. Natural rockeries are all over the beach. Although they are natural, they look like to be carved by skillful craftsmen exquisitely. On the Huangdaishi stone, 10 meters above the sea surface, there is a unique and fantastic view. There are natural stone carvings of “Ten-thousand-volume collection book”, “Hundreds of treasure into a small box “, “Dresser”, “The mirror to reflect monsters”, etc.

There are the bodhi trees and the eight-corner well in the island. The bodhi trees are quite rare to be seen in north. The eight-corner well has been preserved well up till now.
