About
Heping Island was called Sheliao Island in the past. It is located at the north of Taiwan. Heping Bridge connects the island to Keelung City. In 1626, the Spanish army built castles, churches and fortresses, preparing to do business with China and Japan. The castle on the southwest is called San Salvador, the saint savior. This is the first and currently the only castle in Keelung. During the Spanish occupation, Heping Island had busy trading activities with Southeast Asia. After World War II, the island was renamed Heping Island. Today, it is a famous tourist attraction. Heping Island is perfect for diving and sea fishing. With years of erosion by the wind and sea, the eroded rocks and coasts have formed special shapes. We have made Heping Island a coastal park with Ocean pools, beach, tour track, tourism service center and food and beverages. An idealy place for family to have fun together.

Don't Bother (Unless you are Burdened with Small Children)
Jun 2020
This is a very "Taiwanese" park, mobbed by locals who are alternately attracted to the water and repelled by the prospect of a suntan. I can't imagine why a foreign tourist would go here, unless they were stuck in a hotel room with small kids. If that is your situation, then by all means take your toddler for a walk around the short loop trail, and let them splash in the public pool.

Gorgeous Beyond Expectation
Apr 2020
The landscape is so beautiful and the views of coffee shops are unforgettable. The walks along with the whole island and to the top of island are worthwhile and breathtaking. Swimming pool is also cozy enough skillfully integrated with amazing ocean.

Nice coastal landforms
Jan 2020 • Solo
If you enjoy viewing coastal landforms, you would like to check the park out. It's not overrun by tourists, like in Yeliu. I went on a Friday afternoon. There were few visitors. The stroll was very pleasant without rowdy crowds. You can't get down on the rocks like in Yeliu. There is a walkway around the park where you can enjoy views of the eroded rocks, the special features and the open sea. There are cafes in the visitors centre building.
Check the website for times if you want to join the free guided tour there ( one per day during weekdays and two on weekends).

Unique landscape
Dec 2019
We had been to Yehliu, a bigger park with similar landscape but overrun by large tour buses. My cousin had recommended this park and we're so glad that we chose to visit Heping. It was not crowded at all! There's a nice paved path circling the small mountain, along the ocean. Breathtaking views! It appears you can sign up to be lead on a group tour onto the rock formations. We saw a couple of groups but didn't have time to sign up.

Great rock formation and ocean view
Nov 2019 • Solo
我已經來這邊好幾次了~每次來都可以看到不同的景觀。
在這邊你可以享受悠閒的時光、在藍海水池裡跟色彩繽紛的魚兒一起游泳、或是喝一杯咖啡渡過悠閒的午後。
另外,一定要參加園方提供的定時導覽,導覽老師會告訴你這座島前世今生!

I have been here so many times, every time I came here always can see different scenery.
Here you can relax, swim in Blue ocean pool, have a nice cup of coffee and even do nothing.
Make sure join guide tour in visitor center, the guide will show you everything about Heping Island.

Beautiful nature.
Oct 2019
The park lies in a beatiful nature surrounding. We didn't like that the park is very cultivated. The park was partly closed when we visited the park.

Thank you for your visiting. Now the park is fully opened. We also have one secret spot, called Radar Station Caf'e. You could enjoy cafe here and have 270-degree view. Please come here again and see you next time.

Amazing Day Trip
May 2019 • Friends
We were only in Keelung for the day. We wanted to maximize our day by taking a tour that included both Yehliu Geopark and Heping Island Park. Note the small rocks that dot the landscape like a field of mushrooms.

There was an area that we couldn’t venture to due to construction. The stairs could be steep for those who have mobility challenges. There’s a building nearby which you can take an elevator to the third floor for a beautiful view or simply enjoy a beverage. There’s a small temple which is on the way up to the gazebo.

It’s possible to do a day trip from Taipei by bus which takes 40-50 minutes.

Heping Island Park (PEACE Island Park).
Apr 2019 • Solo
April 12, 2019; Heping Island Park (Peace Island Park). I went to the aforementioned Heping Island Park by bus 102 at 8:30. It took 20”. (I pay all of my charges with Easy-Card; buses, trains, if any, convenience stores). There are no bicycles to rent either. No-one speaks English in the visitors centre; other than hello, good-bye or? (Very little English spoken!) Why would they? I’ve seen 2 white people while here. Most of the tourists are Chinese or Taiwanese. The mountain trail is closed off, likely because it is military? You can only go soo far. Bummer! Then I had to walk cane back to see some temples; Tianhou & Tianxian. There are UP on the mountain/hill. The second one (Tianxian) is surrounded by temple gods/monks/priests. (See the pictures, eh?) I did not photo them all, but take my word for it! It was a loooooong day for me. I got back into my hotel at 14:00. It was a really nice day!
