3. Thirty-Six Foot Lake

Thirty-six Foot Lake is the largest natural freshwater lake in Fujian Province. It is the life lake of Pingtan people, with a total area of ​​2.1 million square meters, a water storage capacity of 12.9 million cubic meters, and a maximum water depth of 16 meters. Among them, lakes, seas, mountains, and forests complement each other, and rocks, reefs, monuments, and islands are intertwined. The lake is as flat as a mirror and is beautiful and delicious. It is called the Pearl of the Island.

There is a stone reef deep in the “foot of the lake” called “Longyu”, which looks like a blue dragon with its head raised, and the ancient villagers worshiped it as a god.

Pingtan Shipaiyang Scenic Area

There are only two things like sails standing in the middle of the sea. Whether you see them or not, they are there. This is the largest granite sea stack in my country. This strange and spectacular sight is quite shocking and worth a visit.

Speaking of Banyang Shifan, Pingtan locals affectionately call it “Shipaiyang”. These two huge sea stacks are like the legendary “artifact” of the Dragon King of the East China Sea – the golden cudgel pushed out of the sea from the bottom of the sea, with the momentum of thrusting straight into the clouds and the night sky. They stand on the sea in Kanao Village, Suao Town. There are two natural sea stacks, the one on the east side is 33 meters high and the one on the west side is 17 meters high. The bottoms of the two stone pillars are shaped like “seals” covering the reef.

When you first hear it, you may think that these are just two stones. I am sure that its peculiar shape, magnificent scale and beautiful legend will fascinate you.

This story may have originated from the origin of Shipaiyang. It is said that in the early years there was a mute boy in the local area who lived with a widow. He has been fond of paper-cutting since he was a child, and commanded paper soldiers to charge into battle, so he was known as the Mute Emperor. One day, Penglai Immortal passed by and gave the mute boy three pieces of fairy paper. He cut out some soldiers, generals, horses, and bows and arrows from the paper. He wanted to shoot the emperor to death. The emperor was furious and sent troops to chase him. The uncle and his sister-in-law took the fairy paper. The transformed boat fled to the Shipaiyang Sea, but unfortunately encountered wind and waves and sank, killing both of them. The ship turned into this huge ship-shaped reef, and its two sails turned into these two pillars for future generations to admire.
