Beautiful island linked by a wavy bridge. Mainland area is covered with pebbles. Access to island is by a wavy bridge with 8 humps. Relaxing bridge to walk and take beautiful picture if you have the time. The island is covered with natural vegetation and many forms of eroded rocks. A nice and relaxing place to view the Pacific Ocean.

Taiwan is not a very big island but because of its rugged coastline and mainly mountainous inland, short distance takes forever to reach. the same is with this little island off coast, bus journey is tediously long to go round south eastern part of Taiwan. no wonder there are not many inhabitants here. if u are on tight schedule u...

It was the bridge who took our interest at first. But when we arrived and found out that the bridge connects the bay with small island, real fun starts. We spend more than 3 hours exploring the paths, enjoying the coastal views, even visiting the big cave-tunnel and climbing to the lighthouse with a great view... The way to go... More

It is much more beautiful than what I originally expected. The ocean is really bluish and nice. The gravel/rocky beach is unique and beautiful. The place is good for photographers.

We travelled from Taitung and that was an adventure in itself. Firstly, there are no English versions of anything in Taitung so the bus timetable was impossible to read. Luckily, the Taiwanese are so nice they helped us out and soon enough we found ourselves on a bus. The driver told us when to get off. On the way back... More

Sanxiantai is a must visit if you are in Tatung. It is a picturesque location, as most of the places along the eastern Taiwan seaboard. However, what makes this place special, is the depth of experience you get here and how much closer you can get to the ocean. In addition, you get tons of picture opportunities from different angle... More

It's about one and half hour from taichung city (riding scooter), heading north towards hualien. perfect place to watch sunrise and feel the morning ocean breeze. there's also a bridge that connects main island with another island, you can take pictures from there, freaking wonderful. fantastic place worth the ride.

Beautiful seaside landmark with a small island about 500 meters across a raging ocean channel. A photographer's dream. This natural scenery was a little ruined by the Chinese styled bridge that has 8 arches, which adds to the effort it takes to get across to the island. They could have made a nice normal bridge and it would have been... More

It takes almost 2 hours by the local Taitung shuttle bus to get here. You can buy bus tickets at 7-11 for $300. The ride to Sanxiantai is enjoyable. Once you arrive even though it's a tourist attraction, it's a great sight for all beach lovers, hikers, nature lover, and explorers. It takes 2 to 3 hours to hike across... More

I'm not sure why this bridge is such a big attraction as it isn't historical and only built in the 80s. The views of the coast and ocean are decent but the same that can be found elsewhere without the tourist crowds.
