Located to the southeast of Zhanqiao Bridge, Xiaoqingdao Island is a pleasant little peninsular. Viewed from the sky, the island is shaped like an ancient lute, and hence is also called Lute Island.
The island has a little park, a few small cafes and a white lighthouse. It is a good area for a brief stroll, giving good views of the Huilangge Pavilion, the rusting submarine and destroyer of the Naval Museum, and, if the weather is right, the nearby Yellow Island (Huangdao) nestling in mists.
The island is dotted with black pines and flowers such as oriental cherries, green peaches, pomegranates, and roses of Sharon.
