Because Dongsha island belongs to the military control zone, it does not have enough tourist facilities. In 2004, the Executive Yuan approved “the Dongsha Atoll National Park Project.” The priority of the project is to restore and conserve the marine ecology in Dongsha area, and then to evaluate the possibility for the eco-tour and environmental education in the future.
