Bitou Cape Lighthouse was originally built in 1897 as a hexagonal iron tower. It was destroyed during World War II and rebuilt with the round reinforced concrete tower seen today. The lighthouse remains an important beacon for ship traffic in the Pacific. It is currently closed to the public, but visitors can enjoy the ocean views and scenic landscape, including the sea-sculpted tofu rock formations. Another spectacular sight here is the contrast of calm sea water on the north side of the cape and the high waves on the east. From afar, Bitou Cape looks strikingly like a naval vessel, earning it the nickname of Junjianyan—the "Warship Rock."
