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!)

I was amazed by seeing the ocean view on top of rock. Looking at beautiful wave and breath taken rocks set along the coast, I do not realized we have such beautiful place in Taiwan. I would love to visit again and show to my foreign friends.

2nd visit to this place. Rugged stone structure formed by weathering agent and geographical factors. Another site for your geographical lessons.

There are many reasons to stop in this area - not least to marvel at the sheer power of the ocean. This is part of what is known as "Taiwan's last unspoiled land", found along the east coast of the island. There are some amazing rock formations to view. These have been naturally been created by erosion from the sea... More

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!

It's was scorching hot during summer as I arrived there at about 12noon. It wasn't... More

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!
