Formosa Magazine (Chinese: 『美麗島』雜誌; pinyin: Měilìdǎo Zázhì; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Bí-lē-tó Cha̍p-chì) was a magazine created by Tangwai individuals in Taiwan during the summer of 1979. It opposed the Kuomintang's political monopoly in the Republic of China government. A police raid of the Formosa Press caused the Kaohsiung Incident in December 1979.

There were 61 participants; less than ten were truly active, namely,

  • Huang Hsin-chieh, publisher
  • Chang Chun-hung, chief editor
  • Shih Ming-teh, general manager
  • Hsu Hsin-liang, editor
  • Annette Lu, editor
  • Lin Yi-hsiung, circulation manager
  • Yao Chia-wen, circulation controller
  • The opening celebration took place in Mandarina Crown Hotel (中泰賓館) in the afternoon of September 8, 1979. A blockade by the military ensued, sometimes known as the Mandarina Crown Hotel Incident. For the next three months until the raid, branches were opened throughout Taiwan. Opening were followed by speeches and conferences.
