Cape of San Diego

For other uses, see San Diego (disambiguation)

Cape San Diego (Chinese: 三貂角; pinyin: Sāndiāojiǎo; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Sam-tiau-kak) is a cape located in Gongliao District, New Taipei City, Taiwan. The cape is the easternmost point of the main Taiwan island, and also the easternmost cape of Taiwan. On 5 May 1626, a Spanish fleet reached the northeast tip of Taiwan and named the native village of Caquiunauan (present Fulong) as San Diego. Later this name was extended to the nearby cape.

There is a lighthouse situated on the Cape San Diego, called San Diego Light.
