  • Caisancho Island (Caisancho Island), (Jiayi Township, Chiayi County, 14 km outside the sea), [1]. The Caisancho Island is the largest sandbank along the coastlines of Taiwan. The Wengangdui Lighthouse was built in 1914 to keep the ships away from unseen dangers. However, due to pushing forces of the waves, longshore currents and northeasterly monsoon, the island is drifting an average of 60 to 70 meters southwesterly each year. The lighthouse has collapsed several times due to the drifting and sea erosion and has been restored seven times, the champion of survival among all lighthouses in Taiwan. Although this piece of “drifting land” has not had a smooth-sailing life, the sand bank, joint hand-in- hand with the Dongshi Lagoon, form a larger area of shallow and peaceful inner sea that provides a shelter for abundant marine resources and a perfect environment for oyster farming.  edit
