Beihai Tunnel
Fort No.42

After 1958 August 23rd Artillery Battle in Kinmen, in order to camouflage the combat capability, Matsu Defense Command decided to construct underwater pier in Nangang, Beigang, West Juguang and Dongyin synchronously. It is so called Beihai Project. The Beihai Tunnel on Nangang island is the biggest and most complete construction within the project. However, due to the false calculation of tidal difference, it never functioned as an underwater pier for guerilla boats. To complete the tunnel, over 800 days’ devotion on construction with basic equipment and bare hands, plus many lives were sacrificed during the process. Beihai Project accidentally leave Matsu a magnificent tourist hotspot with most representative military heritage.
