You can book the camping area in advance. They provide us electricity, water and a nice wooden shelter. It's really nice to stay here so close to the sea and listen to the sounds of nature. Waking up in the morning to walk around the seaside is refreshing. can also bring some stuff for BBQ

Definately a worthwhile trip as it is only 1.5hr trip from Hualian Station. Do pick a sunny day as the reflections of the sea is glorious. Climb up all the way to the top of the Great White Rock to enioy the ocean waves crashing against it. Hint: watch you step as it is quite a high place. Dont get... More

While I was serving in the military, I was stationed right here as a coast guard. This place is not far away from where I grow up and it is without a doubt a must-see when one tours along the East Coast.In the morning, you can wake up early to see the sunrise; in afternoon around 4 pm-5pm, gather near...

The ocean with its waters smashing against humongous rock formations, the lush mountains right behind you as you face the ocean- beautiful!

Beautiful,rugged coastal destination. Camping and fishing seems to be the main activities here. We spent time walking around and just taking in the sea views. It was wonderful to spend a couple of days around here. Its near to a fishing port which may offer you the opportunity to see fresh seafood coming back with the fishing boats!

One of the better attractions south of Hualien. You can sit on the ledge of a steep rock cliff to enjoy the ocean breeze.

On you way there, you will find some spot which are interesting. You can rent a car or hire a taxi driver. Just one... More

We went on a sunny day with bright blue skies, and the sight of the skies reflected in the shallow, calmer parts of the waters was simply captivating. A little further, the ocean waves broke dramatically on the coastal rocks, demonstrating the great forces of nature and left us in awe.

Nice relaxing walk. You need to climb a few levels of stairs to commence your trail. Bring an umbrella along as it could rain in May.
