Shitiping translated means stone steps, very understated for what you might discover here. The ocean eroded cliffs are carved into steps on which you can risk climbing for a view/taste of rogue waves. Must not miss.

By walking or driving, you can enjoy both the rocky seashore and pacific flavor. Wondering around the area, you will find the true meaning of life.

We are pleased that it wasn't a wasted long journey to this beautiful stretch. We even chanced upon a filming crew. We climbed up to the apex of a cliff and would have stayed there all day if not for the crew's request that we leave and the looming dark cloud approaching.

Well, i really admire this place, a perfect landscape with shaped rocks on the sea. And there are different route anyone can try too, for different views. It was too crowded, so weekends are not recommended. Sunrise will be much beautiful here, if you can make it in early morning. This place is little bit far from hualien town, but... More

When we arrived it was getting crowded with lots of tourists taking in the sights. We took a short walk from the car park and managed to take some photos without strangers in them. However, when we walked out, there were close to 22 huge coaches in the car park. We ran to our car to get out of there!... More

Along the coast, the marine abrasion in Shihtiping is the most magnificent ...But the view site is flooded with tourists, so I prefererred to visit the harbor .. Super quiet place, no tourists, contact with fishermen and more a great fish restaurant ...

This is an area of coastal terraces with coastal plants, wave-cut platforms (like stone steps), sea trenches and cliffs. There is no shade whatsoever on the rocks! In summer, make sure you have adequate sun block, put on sunglasses and wear a cap/hat to protect your head.

It is one of the scenic east coast attraction at Hualien which is famous for its special geology of sea terrain including the wave-cut platforms, uplifted coral reefs, cliffs and the potholes. It is near to the port where whale-watching first started in Taiwan. There are some wooden structures camping site that are clean and equipped with lights.

Love the view and the kids love the fact we can go catch fishes and crab. Don't like the heat! In fact the first time we were there, we were a lot happier because we are not toast.
