Lying to the south east of the Zhan Bridge, on the Qingdao Bay is a very popular and important place in the coastal scenic resort of the city. It was earlier on a very isolated place till a seawall was built here in the 1940s to connect the island to the mainland. The island is shaped like a Chinese instrument known as Qin and when waves crash against its shores the sound made is similar to that of the instrument. This is the reason because of which the local name ‘Qin’ has been given to this island.

The island is known for its terrific natural beauty and its soothing ambience. It is a perfect escape from the noisy city streets. The lines of cherries, pomegranates and hibiscus make it a picturesque view. There are also rocks and deep outcrops that form a good combination with the soft scenery. You can just walk around the shoreline or rest and enjoy the breeze out here.

Another popular attraction here is the ‘Beacon’ which is a tall structure that was built by the Germans. It is octagonal in shape and is made up of white marble which makes it shine like snow in the morning. At night the tip of this structure has a burning red light that forms a guide to the ships coming towards the shore. The light of the Beacon reflects on the sea waves and this is considered as one of the top 10 most beautiful scenes that you can witness in the city. It is termed as the “Floating Light on the Qin Island”.
