Keelung Islet is set to reopen soon 「台灣龍珠」基隆嶼重新開放

This year’s coming of age ceremonial event in Keelung challenged what is known as the “Pearl of Taiwan Dragon,” Keelung Islet. As there is limited space on the top of the rock of Keelung Islet, it is not possible to let hundreds of people climb to the summit. Instead, at the event, each school sent a representative to climb to the top while the rest of the students did beach cleaning on the hiking trail. It allows students participating in the coming of age ceremony to take the lead in seeing the beautiful scenery of Keelung Islet.

基隆市今年9月20日舉辦的成年禮活動,挑戰有「台灣龍珠」之稱的基隆嶼,山上空間有限,無法讓上百人一起攻頂,因此由各校改推派學生代表參與上山,其他人在步道健行或淨灘,讓參與成年禮學生搶先看基隆嶼美景。

Due to natural disasters, Keelung Islet’s pier has been closed for renovations for over three years, and will reopen to allow sightseers onto the island at the end of September. First, the coming of age ceremony was held there on the 20th, for which there were 11 high schools and vocational schools from all over the city taking part, with each school sending 10 student representatives to participate. Keelung Islet is a well-known sightseeing spot in Keelung City which once set a record of 70,000 tourists visiting the island in one year.

基隆嶼因天災毀壞碼頭,封閉整修3年餘,9月底將重新開放登島觀光,20日先舉辦成年禮活動,全市11所高中職,每校派10名學生表參加。基隆嶼是基隆市著名觀光景點,曾創下1年7萬名遊客登島紀錄。

Keelung Islet, known as the “Pearl of the Taiwan Dragon” will be reopened to visitors this year. Many recreational fishing boats are ready and waiting to set sail. In order to let the beauty of Keelung Islet welcome its guests, the Keelung City Government embarked on a beach cleaning campaign in mid-May involving over 500 people.

基隆嶼被稱為「台灣龍珠」,今年要重新開放,很多娛樂漁船蓄勢待發。為了讓基隆嶼美美迎賓,基隆市府5月中發動500多人登島淨灘。

At that time, the city government’s News Department took a photographic drone, to shoot aerial views from above the pier. Many people exclaimed with surprise that they had seen sharks, which also made Keelung Islet an overnight news sensation. In the early stage of opening, an operational mode will be adopted, allowing visitors to be exempt from resource conservation and environmental maintenance costs, with only sailing fees for recreational fishing boats to be charged.

當時市府新聞科帶著空拍機,從碼頭上空拍下來,許多人驚呼看到鯊魚,也讓基隆嶼一夕爆紅。開放初期採試營運方式,登島遊客免收資源保育及環境維護費用,僅收取娛樂漁船的船舶規費。
