Nanwan Monkey Island Eco-scenic Area is a Chinese nature reserve founded in 1965. Its purpose is the protection and breading of macaque monkeys. Today there are over 2,000 monkeys in the park which covers some 1,000 hectares. Visitors can get up close to the monkeys in a zoo like environment. There are also some animal stage shows. A unique feature of the park is a super long cable car line that runs across the sea. It is the longest sea crossing cable car in China with a span of 2,138 metres.
