Little Liuqiu isn't a big island, as said its name implies. Most habitants on this tiny island earn their living from the sea. Some people have even said that“there are captains everywhere in Little Liuqiu.”Therefore it's easy to understand how important a guiding facility lighthouses are to local fishermen and fisherwomen. There are currently two lighthouses on the Liuqiu Island. One located at the Baisha Port; most fishing boats refer to it as the main target because it is closer to the port and provides a clearer direction for boats. Another one is called White Lighthouse. It isn't the main reference for local fishers, however, it is an internationally recognized lighthouse. During the period of Japanese occupation, Kaohsiung Fishery Society spent around 10,000 yen to build this lighthouse on top of the Southeast Peak Mountain (N:22°19’58’’  E:120°21’55’’).

White Lighthouse is a white cylinder built by concrete. The entire structure is 11 meters tall from base to top, and the height from sea level to top of the lighthouse is around 88 meters. White Lighthouse flashes every 2.21 seconds all day long, and its luminosity can reach about 20 nautical miles. White Lighthouse, similar to the Eluanbi Lighthouse, is an international target lighthouse, and they both play very crucial roles in guiding vessels between the Taiwan Strait and the Bashi strait. The importance of White Lighthouse is undeniable.
