Gorgeous beach
Oct 2020 • Couples
Beautiful beach with gorgeous views plus all kinds of sports as well as some nice bars and restaurants. Somehow, half of stores are closed and abandoned now. The sunset view is magnificent but the water is a bit too cold to get in now. Definitely a must visit spot for anyone traveling to Kending.

Quiet and local beach - used to be
Aug 2020 • Couples
We love the peace and quiet of this beach. It is a great place to watch sunsets and relax when it is not tourist season. But during tourist season it is insane and loud with tractors pulling ocean toys and jet skis everywhere. So go off season.

Nice beach. Watch out for jet skis.

Nanwan is a beautiful little beach tucked in a bay next to a road between Hengchun and Kenting. Picture the French Riviera without the French restaurants and with more scooters.

The weekends are a bit hectic, so try to avoid it at all costs. If you cannot, try finding a spot at the west end of the beach near the power station.

Watch out for all the free wheeling jet skis. If it hasn’t already happened, someone is going to get killed or seriously injured by one of the jet skis that are constantly zipping around swimmers as they return and exit the beach. Assume there are no regulations for this. Hopefully they do something about it before someone gets hurt.

The road boarding the beach is covered with a ton of wonderful restaurants, bars, hostels, and boutique hotels. I stayed at place for 1,500/night with an amazing view of the ocean.

For me, the best part of the location is access to the beach at night. Grab a few beers at 7-11, cross the street, and enjoy the beautiful night sky to the natural soundtrack of ocean waves hitting the beach. Priceless (including the 25nt beers).

All in all, a nice little beach next to a strip of great restaurants and hotels. Watch out for the jet skis and take advantage of the beach at night.

Here is a busy beach for water activities with fame in Keinting. Lots of activities to choose from but remember to compare and bargain a bit. A place with Convenience and fun

Windy beach
Nov 2018
We were whipped by the sand - the beach was very windy in mid-October. Beside that, it was just OK. Easy to reach from Kenting town. It's close to the nuclear power plant (you can see it from the beach). Some infrastructure is present, but not a lot of food selection - at least in not-so-good weather conditions. Better to take some fruits with you - just in case.

Nanwan is a great place to hang out
Visit Nikki at Cowboy’s Beach Bar while you’re there
The view, the food, the beer and the cocktails just make it

Surfers Paradise of Taiwan!
Oct 2018 • Solo
Lovely beach and a lot of local surfers.
Reminds me of where I grew up in California.
The waves are not big all year long, but when there are storms nearby the waves grow! Good long rides on these waves, it’s really a surfers paradise in Taiwan!
There are surfing festivals and championships every year! The weather is great here all year long and the village is very charming. The locals are very friendly and extremly helpful. One of the best kept secrets in the travel world!

Beautiful, touristy but..
Jun 2018 • Couples
Nanwan is a beautiful stretch of beach where you can get almost any of the typical sea activities you may like. Problem was, the washed up dead corals really make it difficult and painful to get to the clear white waters! Still a place worth visiting! It quieter than xiao wan tho there isnt much food at night.
