Dapeng Bay covers the two designated scenic areas of Dapeng Bay and Little Liuqiu. The northern boundary of Dapeng Bay is the Provincial Highway 17 and the Ping 63 County Road. The eastern and western boundaries are Linbian and Xinggou in Donggang Township respectively. To the south, there is a 600-meter sea area starting from the high tide mark of the coastal line. The main features of Dapeng Bay include the Qingzhou Rest Area. In this region, there is a famous boat festival of the Donglong Temple in Donggang. Tourists can also enjoy the beautiful submarine scenery on Little Liuqiu Island.

Dapeng Bay is the largest inner bay in Taiwan, providing rich resources of sea animals and plants in this region. Redwoods and sea eggplants are growing by the sea; Ipomoea pes-caprae, Excoecaria agallocha, and Clerodendron inerme are all very famous. The animals in the Dapeng Bay National Scenic Area are mainly birds, fish and mollusks. There are about 95 kinds of birds, including migratory birds. Fish include groupers, and other sea animals include a special kind of tide-waving crabs on the wetlands.

Little Liuqiu is the only coral island found among the 14 islands around Taiwan. It is famous for three features: the best location for watching sunsets, the largest variety of corals, and the entire island as a coral reef. The whole island is full of strange rocks and reveals many beautiful ocean landscapes.

There are around 100 temples in Liuqiu and Dapeng Bay. Many temples are located around Donggang Town, and the Linbian and Nanzhou Townships. Among all the temples, the Donglong Temple in Donglong Village, Donggang Township has the longest history. Once every three years, people there will hold a ceremony to "burn the boat" and this is considered the biggest celebration of this kind. Seafood is famous around Taiwan and is inexpensive. Donggang has three treasures: blue fin tuna, cherry shrimp and fat roe. Liuqiu is also famous for its barbecued squid and sausage.
