Neighborhood: Southwest Coast National Scenic Area
Southwest Coast National Scenic Area starts from Yunlin on the north all the way to Tainan’s Yanshuei River on the south and borders Taiwan Provincial Highway 17on the east. The long strip of land enriches the possibilities for leisure activities of all kinds. The recreation in Yunlin and Chiayi focuses more on the scenery of offshore sandbanks, fishing ports, and temple culture, whereas that in Tainan places emphasis on the view of lagoons, migratory birds, and salt pans. There are two famous art installations, one of which is Crystal High-heel Shaped Church in Budai, Chiayi. The other one is the Crystal Church in Beimen, Tainan. Others include the several art installations at the Wedding Attraction in front the Scenic Area’s Headquarters. Each year they manage to attract millions of people. Views vary each season in the area. In spring, it is salt evaporation; in summer, it is sand sculpture; in autumn, sunset view; in winter, migratory birds, and plus seasonal seafood. To have a glimpse of Taiwan’s coastal scenery, choose Southwest Coast National Scenic Area.

Good place for families out on the weekend
Sep 2017
It's only opend on the weekend. Going there with my Families last Sunday. You can follow the path along the wharf , to see the beautiful ocean view. There is a water play area for the children in the park. Many parents took their children to played water . Also you could watch street artists with their performances in the park .

A beautiful sunset setting and lots of outdoor food choices
Mar 2016 • Friends
We timed our day out to arrive at the wharf just before sunset. We found a seat on the sea wall and let the sun and the sea put on a free performance for us.

There are a number of food concessions in the buildings nearby. We enjoyed a variety of seafood dishes that were reasonably priced. We enjoyed some music while eating and watched others taking advantage of the small park to fly their kites.

Perfect for a family outing
Apr 2016 • Family
This is a great place for a family outing with young children, there's a huge sandbox with synthetic sand water fountains for kids to play in the water on hit days, nice view of the ocean .. bring a picnic or buy some seafood at the onsite restaurant don't forget your kite if you have one if not buy one there..

Dragon Boat Festival
Jun 2015
We went when it was the dragon boat festival- There was plenty to do! Mainly just hung out by the harbour and under the shade, do not try and sit on the grass, biting ants everywhere! If you were looking to go outside of the dragon boat festival there's probably not a lot to see, plenty to keep young kids entertained as it is also kind of a water park there are small water entertainments that would be plentiful for them- Adults just go on the day of the dragon boat festival and take suncream.

Not overly exciting
Jun 2015 • Friends
The area here is a working port with a lot of oyster beds. There is a small park and you can walk along the sea wall, but it doesn't hold your interest for a while. The best time to visit is when the Dragon Boat festival is on in mid June, but be prepared for the heat.
