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.

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

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.

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.

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.
