Mashan is the place closest to Xiamen. During the high tide, it's only 2 kilometers away, while it's 1700 meters during low tide. In the early Ming Dynasty, there has been an official checkpoint. Since ancient times, it has been a strategic location for maritime affairs. Due to its close distance, Mashan Tunnel's broadcasting and observation post features binoculars that can clearly observe the opposite shore and every movement there. It's also not a problem to directly swim to the other shore. According to a rumor, former army company commander Lin Cheng-Yi (Justin Lin), once thought to be missing, swam to the opposite shore while holding onto two basketballs. For this very reason, Mashan has started to supervise their floatation equipment, and even individuals who are able to swim more than 500 meters are supervised. Now Kinmen and Xiamen have started to patrol the waters on sightseeing boats, easily spotted with their flags. As a result of the close distance, a broadcasting and transmission station is also established here. During the tense Cold War era, broadcasts were often made to the opposite shore. Popular singer Teresa Teng back then was even allowed to convey a short message, urging fellow compatriots on the other side to head for democracy. To this day, you can still hear this message at Beishan broadcasting wall, and listen to the circumstances back then.
