Warning for those with no car and no Mandarin
Jul 2017
Warning: For those without a car, and also possibly for those without ability to read/speak Chinese, this review is for you. I do not wish to be unfair -- and this is NOT really a review of the Fish Market (which was small but fine -- we only spent a short time there), so I will tell our travel story (from Taipei Main Station) and let the reader draw conclusions before you plan a trip here. We have one Taiwanese speaker/reader of Mandarin in our group (highly recommended -- with English only, we would not have found the place at all), and had to take public transportation. READ the Google time estimates before you try this. It took us roughly 2 1/2 hours to get to the port from Taipei Main / Railway (first by local train to Zhongli and then by bus -- and hour each with added connection waits). At the bus station between Taipei and the fisherman's port (at Zhongli), we were VERY confused and forced to ask directions from local people (in Mandarin). Once at the port, we found the bridge was under construction (nowhere stated in any review or announcement that we had seen) -- it has scaffolding all around it and NO LIGHTS. The bridge is also very small -- not much to see. The port is also small, as is the nearby beach (10 minutes to walk the full length of that beach -- no need for a bike there). The Green Tunnel starting area is another 1 km walk from the port/bus stop (estimated 20 minutes walk one way) -- with no signs that we could find in any language (we had to ask local people again -- in Mandarin). We had started too late from Taipei to do the Green Tunnel, and feared there would be no bus to return if we stayed too late. The only schedule available at the bus station in Zhongli concerning returns from the port was for one "tour-bus" (505), which had a last run at 6:30 pm from the port area back to Zhongli. That is before the sunset. It was 20 minutes late, and after another almost three hours (by bus to Zhongli and then by another bus back to Jiantan MRT Station in Taipei), we arrived at 9 pm (left Taipei at 3 pm that day), and never got to the Green Tunnel biking route at all. Moral: If you do NOT have a car, schedule a FULL day to get here from the city, and don't expect to see much before the Green Tunnel (which I will not review, as we never saw it). I am sure the seafood is good in the Fish Market, but we did not try it -- no time. The 7-11 store at the bus stop is small but has seating and good coffee. Next time we will likely try Tamsui instead for the easier/faster transportation.

Nothing too special

Dark sand beach, a fisherman village nearby with recently developed into a seafood restaurants district, that's about it really....

漂亮且乾淨的景點 clean local habor , not crowed
Sep 2015 • Family
永安漁港,碧海藍天很美,不會有過於擁擠的人潮,是個可以舒舒服服享受空間的地方。販賣處的餐點,小攤小吃比較有特色,餐廳坐下吃的快炒店平平。 海濱公園的海提邊玩吹泡泡,風大但非常過癮。

Habor view is good. Sunny days need your glasses. Not too many people, easy and clean. Food court is fair, prefer booth food than sit-in shop. Seashore park is windy but good to play bubble . That's fun.

Fresh seafood
Feb 2016 • Family
A commercialised fishing village. Not a lot to do / see, but there are a lot of seafood restaurants selling fresh / living seafood. Good price - NT$2700 for 12 people for lunch.
