One of the most famous attractions in east coast, Shitiping is known for its special geology of sea terrain including the wave-cut platforms, uplifted coral reefs, cliffs and the potholes. You can see the tropical fish in tide pools from potholes and other marine life dwell here.

The view of both the mountains and the Pacific Ocean is amazing. You can have a nice walk in the area, climb the rocks on the beach and take pictures. There are some hotels if you want to spend the night.

A stopover along our route from Hualien to Kenting along the famous East Coast, Shihtiping is a place not to be missed. Giving a serene and unforgettable sight, it is really a great relaxing place too. We are amazed by what mother nature could do to the formation of the rocks alongside the bay creating uniqueness just for Shihtiping. If... More

The ocean view is one of the nice i have seen before. It is on May but it is still pretty cold for us. Along the way, the road is quite winding but the view is fantastic! No many people at the time we visited the place and we have spend quite a few hours for photo taking and enjoying... More

Quite similar to the coast of the Port Campbell National Park of VIC, Australia. Crashing waves and weathered rocks of both volcanic and limestone origin. The area is undergoing some repairs as the previous typhoon damaged a lot of safety barriers. Strangely the place has been visited by a lot of mainland tourists arriving in busloads. Best to come here... More

Absolutely beautiful! Better than the Great Ocean Road in Melbourne. My kids enjoyed climbing the rocks. Easy climb and you will be rewarded with great views. I can sit on the rocks watching the ocean the whole afternoon!

Also known in Chinese language as the "Stone steps", this natural rock formation is presented to us after millions of years being exposed to the natural elements, wind and water. You can't miss the main rock, which is white in colour (limestone), amid the dark volcanic rocks on the side. Before you get to that point, you have to go... More

Powerful statement of what the ocean and wind can do. But rain and this place does not match. Do not go to this place if it is raining.
