Located in the southeast waters of Xiamen's Xiang'an district, the Dadeng Isles are comprised of three islands—Dadeng, Xiaodeng and Jiaoyu. Known as the Three-Hero Islands, they cover an area of 13.2 square kilometers.

Yangtang village in southeastern Dadeng is the closest area on the Chinese mainland to Kinmen of Taiwan. The two places stand face-to-face across the Taiwan Strait, with the shortest distance less than 2 kilometers.

The village was crumbled to dust after the August 1958 battles. It has now been rebuilt to Three-Hero Island Park, and become a patriotism education base as well as a scenic spot.
