Stopped here as an attraction on Edisons five day tour. To be honest I wondered what the attraction actually was. We are used to eroded seascapes in the UK, and this was nothing special. Everybody makes something of the word Pacific as though it bigs everything up, but it is just the sea and all the photos taken by the... More

Great rock formation designed by erosion and weather. If you are daring, can climb down below for some fishing and wading. A relaxing and breezy place to view the Pacific Ocean. Do be careful. This place is crowded with a group of creatures who tend to swarm the place and jostle you into the sea. Find a more secluded spots... More

Craggy rocks (or what our local driver called it 'mini Yehliu) formed by pounding waves and strong winds overlook the ocean. If you are brave enough, with good hiking/rock climbing skills, you can climb to the tip of the highest rock and have an amazing view of the ocean. There are no safety rails (which is great for nature enthusiasts)... More

If you walk through the campsite you can find a quieter place to relax and enjoy view. Would be a nice enough place for a mini picnic. Other than that not a whole lot here except literally hundreds of tour buses.

A tourist park for people to camp, B&B or snorkeling here. THis is also a good place to see the sunrise. Some B&B are expensive and some B&B has reasonable price.

If you enjoy rocky beaches, this is the place to visit. The rocks are right at the water's edge, and you can scramble around the tops of them and get a great view of the ocean. There are no protective railings so I don't recommend taking small children. There are some railed viewing points near the parking area and public... More

I was on an round the island scooter trip in 2013. I stopped at Shitiping, not decided if I should stay the night or continue with my journey to Taitung. The view of the Pacific Ocean is so gorgeous! Decided to camp for the night! Waking up to birds chirping and the sounds of the waves were the best highlights... More

Wind was very very strong but I loved the place, to be able to climb up the rocks and see the gushing waves.

If you love coastal sites, you'll love Shihtiping. Beautiful rock formations and just an awesome panaromic sight. I took the bus from Hualien city - quite a distance, but it was worthwhile. I spent a few hours just enjoying the summer breeze and taking beautiful shots (ended up sun burnt, but that's a different story altogether!)
