 Green Island

Taiwan

English (Translate this text in English): Green Island is a small volcanic island in the Pacific Ocean, about 33 km (20.5 miles) off the eastern coast of Taiwan. In the 19th century it was known as Samasana Island and the Japanese called it Kasho-to. The island is 15.092 km² at high tide and 17.329 km2 at low tide.

Administratively, Green Island is Lutao Hsiang, a township of Taitung County and one of the county's two offshore areas (the other is Orchid Island, or Lanyu). Green Island is the ROC's fourth-largest island. It is accessible by airplane in eight to 12 minutes from Taitung City. There are also ferries capable of carrying over 250 passengers.

Green Island has outstanding marine life and excellent all year round diving with 25-35M visibility. During winter time, December to March, there are schooling Hammerhead sharks at the the South-east point of the island. Small and large groups of sharks up to 100 or more may be observed.

The shark point is an advanced dive with strong currents in which may at certain times exceed 5 knots. The remainder of the island has excellent diving with slight to moderate currents. Green Island has excellent soft and hard coral growth, and large fish.

Green Island is home to the largest single coral growth in the world, a large coral bummie accessible from the shore, it sits in about 16m of water.
