Highlights

The broadcasting station here, like Beishan on another part of the island, sent messages across the water encouraging soldiers in Mainland China to surrender.

Mashan was the outpost of utmost strategic importance, where naval operations in the Strait were closely monitored.

This is the closest point to Mainland China on the main island of Kinmen.

Introduction

Mashan is only 2,100 meters away from Xiamen's Jiaoyu Islet. At low tide, the distance narrows down to 1,800 meters.
Mashan Observation Station
On a clear day, both the east and west peaks of Hongjian Mt in Fujian Province, China are visible. Once inside the gate of the observation station, you enter a tunnel, and see displays of military facilities.

Mashan Broadcasting Station
The speakers were loud enough to reach Mainland China, and the locals called this spot "the shouting station". The propaganda included sweet ballads sung by Teresa Deng, who was an equally popular singer on both sides of the Strait. Now, you can occasionally hear pop music and Taiwanese songs coming gently out of the speakers.
