The area
Address
Neighborhood: Shuangxi / Gongliao District
The Old Caoling Tunnel is the first railroad tunnel renovated as a cycling tunnel in North Taiwan. The Old Tunnel is designed with a railroad museum concept. Cycling through the Old Caoling Tunnel with train sound effects is just like going through a real railroad tunnel, feeling not only retro but also fun. The Old Caoling Tunnel cycling path links Shicheng and Longmen campsite, drawing out a beautiful mountain coast green cycling lawn through the north-eastern cape. Along the coast, enjoy the blue ocean and craftsmanship of nature in the ocean wind. During the “Ho-Hai-Yan Gongliao Rock Festival” held in Fulong Beach every July, indie bands around the world are invited to perform here and attract numerous music loving youths to gather and have fun in the water enjoying nights of music with an evening ocean breeze. One can also experience the slow lifestyle of farms and gardens, and feel the clean air, pure water, and good soil of organic farms. The locals harvest crops to sell in Shuangxi Station morning market. They are as friendly and simplistic as the Shuangxi crops sold.

This is a well maintained beach with clean sands, clear water, landscape and fine restaurants. Every family member will enjoy them.

Beach is closed
Oct 2019 • Couples
We went to Fulong Beach on October 2nd, unfortunately the beach was closed (no lifeguard on duty) from October 1st to May 31st. We didnt had to pay to walk over the bridge which was great.. but once on the beach... lots of garbage, plastics, clothes, tires and bicycles washed up on the shore. It was very disappointing.. I believe it was due to the Typhoon.. its a very beautiful town, but the beach needs more care.

Day trip from Taipei
Aug 2019 • Couples
There is a 100 fee to get on the beach. Not a big deal but beaches should be free.
Swimming is non-existent, unless you go far left or right from the lifeguard station. Otherwise, people MUST stay inside the swimming buoys that allow you to go up to about your knees.
Beach was clean when I was there.

Somewhat Dirty
Jul 2019 • Friends
We visited here as a group during our study abroad (with some local students as well). We had to pay to park but it was only 100 NTD. You also had to pay to enter the beach and this is where things got uncomfortable. The entrance was 100 NTD or 50 NTD if you were female and willing to wear a bikini. This made several of the females in our group really uncomfortable so we elected to pay the full price and keep our clothes on. In fact, i was wearing a bikini that day but ended up swimming in a t-shirt because I felt so uncomfortable about the entire thing.

The sand is nice, but we walked down the beach a little to get away from the crowds and it was quite dirty a little ways past the sand castle exhibits. There was a TON of plastic and garbage that had washed up on the shore. I couldn't believe how much of it there was. I think, perhaps, that we had walked past where most beach-goers sit, but it was still very striking to see. It didn't affect our ability to play in the water, though. I wish we had brought more trash bags, but we only had one small one. We did what we could, but you could tell that no one had cleaned that beach in quite a while.

OK for the Weekend if you have No Place Else to Go. Retro place from the 80s. Good Seafood
Aug 2018 • Friends
Was looking for a short getaway for the weekend from Taipei city. This beach is easily accessible by train from the Nangang railway station. You have to take the train heading north.

The beach is accessible through a resort and across a long bridge. The area for swimming was pathetically small. Not for serious swimmers.

There are several seafood restaurants where you have to take a bus to. The prices of the seafood was reasonable, not very cheap like in Thailand or Malaysia but affordable.

Abandonned and dirty
Jan 2019 • Solo
Drove here from Taipei on january 4th 2019. Most probably low season. Almost all businesses closed. Hotel accomodation looks abandonned. Beach is very dirty and full of plastics. Entrance fee 40£. The way from Taipei to here is nice, the see is nice despite the beach.

Beautiful Beach
Aug 2018 • Family
Parking was super easy. We paid $100 to park our car all day. It is a short walk to the beach entrance. There is an entry fee of $100 per person but it is worth it because it includes free use of umbrellas along the beach, fresh water showers and good bathrooms. After you pay to get in you walk over a bridge to get to the beach front. There were 2 lifeguards on duty the entire time we were there. You can rent lockers, hair dryers, surf boards and boogie boards if you want. If you go back across the bridge (close to the hotel) you can buy drinks/snacks.

The water was warm and the beach was very clean. We really enjoyed our day here.

There were quite a few long boarders and paddle boarders riding the small waves. This would be a good place to learn how to surf because the waves a small and they break slowly.

Pretty good beach
Mar 2018 • Friends
Fulong beach is one of the best beaches in Taiwan. It's easily accessible by train from Taipei main station. The beach has yellow sand. The water is clean. You can swim. There are lifeguards, but they don't bother you like in Toucheng (another beach further south). As almost everywhere in Taiwan, you will find convenient stores such as the ubiquitous Seven Eleven, but there aren't many good places to eat lunch or dinner, especially if you don't want to eat Chinese food. In that case, you'd better take what you want to eat with you.

What I really don't like about this beach is the proximity of the nuclear plant. With what happened in Ukraine and more recently in Japan, I don't feel too comfortable with nuclear plants. And this one I am talking about is less than ten kilometers away!
