We wanted some Taiwanese beach time but didn't like the look of Kenting. So glad we made the choice to go to Penghu. Easy 50 minute flight from Taipei. Easy 20 minute drive from the airport. Great atmosphere - laid back lifestyle - excellent beaches - very safe - very affordable. Taxis are cheap and plentiful but there seems to... More

The natural view, nice people, beautiful beaches, delicious food, a-must-go-place for your summer vacation. Prepare your sunblock for sunbathing the whole day.

We visited Penghu at the beginning of August 2014 and spent 3 days 2 nights there. After reading all the reviews we decided to take a ferry to the island. We have done some researches and found out that aparantly it was able to get there by ferry from Tainan. It turned out that there are no ferries going from... More

Book a next early morning boat ticket from the Magong main island, or flight directly landing on Chimei island. Peopole attracked by the famous attraction "Double Hearts Rocks". Me, too! But more over is the scenery on the way from the dock to see the rocks. We chose to rent scooters to go, and enjoy the journey, the view on... More

There are many beaches in and around Penghu, and it's amazing that all of them are clean and not crowded as one would see in most beaches. There are different beaches for you to go for the sunrise and sunset. The seafood is really fresh and cheaper as compared to Taiwan. If you're not into water activities or the beach,... More

This is my first time there and I have been deeply surprised by how clean the beach is compare to some of the beaches from Taiwan. Needless to mention the clarity of the sea. You can see through the navy blue and watch small fish swimming carefreely. The sun there was scorching hot for sure. But luckily I went there... More

I've been here a couple of times and its always a lovely trip. Things have changed a little since the 'good old days' and now you can't rent scooters on the main island without a local licence (they won't accept international licences either). However, there is bike rental available, some hotels have bikes for hire, and apparently the airport has... More

We were teaching in Taiwan for 2 weeks and needed a break from the busy city life. We looked at going to Fulong beach (outside of Taiwan) or south to Kenting (too far, $$) but we settled on Penghu. We were glad we did. Penghu has the most beautiful beaches I've seen in Taiwan. It offers a variety of beach... More
