Lying around 50 km (30 miles) west of the mainland, the Penghu Archipelago is a popular retreat for Taiwanese vacationers. The winds that eroded its distinctive stacks and cliffs also make it a world-famous windsurfing destination – home both to international competitions and numerous rental outfits offering lessons to beginners.
The Penghu or Pescadores Islands are an archipelago of 90 islands and islets in the Taiwan Strait. The largest city is Magong, located on the largest island, which is also named Magong.
Covering an area of 141 square kilometers (54 sq mi), the archipelago collectively forms Penghu County of the Republic of China (Taiwan) and is the smallest county of Taiwan Province after Lienchiang County (the Matsu Islands) of the Fujian Province. Wikipedia
