Green Island lies in the Pacific Ocean, 33 km east of coastal Taitung City, a tiny island only 16.2km square with a population of 3,300. One of Green Island's most popular attractions is to be found underwater. The reef which surrounds the island supports more than 150 species of hard coral and at least 50 varieties of soft coral. Developments in services and facilities, including a recent upgrade of the small domestic airport, have made the island a popular tourist destination.
