The area
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.

Closest Sandy Beach to Hualien
Feb 2015 • Family
This beach is at a tiny fishing harbor barely noticeable with two jetties. It is probably the closest sandy beach to Hualien city and about 20 minutes closer to the more well known Ciji Beach farther south. The beach is perhaps a kilometer long and has 3 large covered pavilions on the sand which offer shelter from the weather. Although the surf might be too rough to safely swim, it is an attractive beach with a 10 car parking lot and broken down bathroom in poor condition.

Although it is a sandy beach about 1/3 of it is covered with pebble rock patches. There is a coast guard station off the beach with a Taiwanese flag flying. Look for km marker 17 on Highway 11 and turn sharp left turn toward the ocean after the bus stop when you see a small red and white sign indicating the intersection ahead. There is a large fishing boat by the side of the road which is parked as a monument to the fishing village. Descend below and pass the small temple shrine to enter the parking lot.
