龜將軍與龍王公主的千年淒美傳說 

當火車一出草嶺隧道,就可看見浮出海面的龜山島,欣賞她隨著蜿蜒的鐵道而百變的風貌!

龜山島又名龜山嶼,位於宜蘭縣頭城鎮海岸以東約10公里處,是孤懸於海中之火山島嶼,因其形似浮龜而得名,全島東西長3.3公里,南北長1.7公里,面積只有2.85平方公里,海岸線長約10公里。

龜山島自古為蘭陽平原地標,更有「靈龜守護宜蘭」的圖騰意義,島上巉崖峭壁,溫泉湧出,並有山巒、海蝕洞、湖泊、冷泉,特殊崖生植物及豐富的海洋生態,海水沖蝕、潮起潮落,美不勝收,更是東北角賞鯨聖地,乘賞鯨船時,還可順遊龜山島,景致更是風情萬種。

據文獻記載,清朝光緒年間,就有從福建及臺灣移居而來的居民住在島上,民國66年時,龜山島的居民決定集體遷至頭城鎮大溪里的龜山島社區,而成為只有國軍駐防的管制區,民國89年8月1日龜山島正式開放觀光,由東北角管理處負責規劃、開發與經營,並因其特殊、豐富且原始的生態資源,將其定位為海上生態公園,不但為東北角海岸增添了一個全新的遊憩景點,也帶動了海上觀光產業的發展。

在不同的位置、氣候、潮汐下觀賞龜山島,都有不同的景觀變化,這也是龜山島迷人的魅力所在。
