大汉据点 (Dàhàn Jùdiǎn, Dahan Stronghold or Dahan Strongpoint) is a military bunker which is part of the fortifications of the island. Matsu island is located off the Chinese coast but belongs to Taiwan. After the communist party ruled China they intended to conquer the last resisting part, and there were numerous approaches to conquer the islands. After the Second Taiwan Strait Crisis the island was heavily fortified. This was a stronghold, a bunker manned by a few soldiers, with embrasures towards the sea, so it was possible to shoot approaching enemy vessels.
Today it is possible to visit the bunker, after crossing the pebble beach. It is renovated but there is no exhibition inside, all weapons, furniture and personal items were removed when the bunker was abandoned. The bunker has three levels, the upper level with the military headquarter, the middle level with accommodation and machine gun reserves, and the lower level had anti-aircraft guns, briefing room and storerooms.
