Matsu is subordinate to Lienchian County of Fuchien Province. Situated in the northeast corner of the Taiwan Straits and separated from mainland China by only a narrow strip of water, Matsu, like Kinmen to the south, is also made up largely of granite. Its scenery consists of sea-eroded terrain, natural sand and pebble beaches, sand dunes, precipitous cliffs, and other scenic features. In addition to its beautiful jagged coastline and the migratory birds that pass through and provide precious ecological resources, Matsu also offers traditional eastern Fujian villages built on mountainsides as well as defensive fortifications built by the military.
