The Penghu (pronounced "pung hoo") is an archipelago, not a single island. The sea around Penghu is a saturated turquoise and the sand coral, so pack beach footwear.

Penghu, at the Taiwan western side, is composed of 90 islets; most are desert islands. The largest city is Magong, located on the largest island, which is also named Magong.


See Taiwan.


As a rule of thumb, the summer months (April to September) are very hot and humid, usually over 30 degrees, and constitute the high season. The winter months (October to February) are very windy. March and April might be the best reason to visit. The islands are much more quiet in winter time (low season), but often at the price of an extremely heavy wind. When the winds come, boats to other islands such as Qi-Mei are often cancelled.


List popular passages/routes, timing, etc.


Add here VHF channel for coastguard, harbor masters. etc.

Also see Cruiser's Nets


Add any navigation notes such approaches, dangers etc here. If this section does not apply remove it.


If there is no port of entry in the island omit this section.

If there is a port of entry submit details about facilities for checking in - where to dock, location of immigration & customs, etc.

Also in this case add Yes to the portofentry= item of the Infobox above.

  • The main entry point of Penghu is the domestic Magong airport which is located in the middle of the main island, which is not walking distance to Magong city as it is a 20 minute drive from the city of Magong
  • There is ferry all year round from Kaohsiung which takes 5 hours and 5 minutes, and arrives at a downtown Magong pier from where you can easily walk along the main street and around the downtown area



Give a short history of the island.
