Located at the northeast of Xiamen Island, Wuyuan Bay is a treasured place integrating multiple natural resources including waterscape, hot spring, vegetation, wetland and gulf. It gains the name for the five circular arch bridges (Tianyuan, Diyuan, Riyuan, Yueyuan and Renyuan) built in it.

“Qihang” is a landmark sculpture standing upright in the inner bay of Wuyuan Bay. Possessing 351 aquatic berths, Wuyuan Bay Marina is the largest and the most mature marina in Southeast China which just lies behind the sculpture. China (Xiamen) International Boat Show, China Club Cup Sailing Race, Strait Cup Sailing Race and other famous exhibitions and competitions are all celebrated here.

Covering an area of 85 hectares, Wuyuan Bay Wetland Park is Xiamen’s largest wetland ecological garden honored as the “urban green lung”. Wetland Ecological Nature Reserve, Mangrove Floristic Area, Bird-watching Island and Circular Lake Leisure Sports Area are established in the Park for the inhabitance of hundreds of various wild plants and dozens of rare birds. In particular, the most famous site is the “Black Swan Heaven” where hundreds of black swans dance trippingly. In addition, Wetland Park is also equipped with Xiamen’s largest outdoor wooden trestle maze and China’s only purified seawater bath hall. Wetland Park receives 200,000 tourists each year.
