I heard about Taitung being a surfing hot spot but didn't know what to expect, so when we visited in April for my daughter's Challenge Taiwan race, I thought I should bring them all to Dulan to try out surfing just for fun. I got...through to Mark the owner on the phone and he managed to fit us in for a 3-hours lesson right away the next morning with free use of the surf boards for the entire day.
My husband and two daughters (8yo and 10yo) joined Mark to the very quiet sandy beach early in the morning. Mark started the lesson with a lot of life lesson on what to do if the current drags you down and other handy tips that are both lifesaving and mental notes to pick up surfing techniques much faster. The girls have tried surfing in Bali but they just got on the boards with the teacher holding it and telling them when to stand up, they never managed to pick up the essence of it the way they did with Mark.
My 8yo was so afraid and wouldn't even touch the surf board at first, Mark immediately got another teacher James to come down to the beach to look after her as she needed to play around doing body surfing, fall into the sea a few times to get used to the sea before she can learn surfing. Midway through the lesson not only was she able to surf all the way to the beach she is now claiming surfing is her favourite watersport!!!!
They thoroughly enjoyed their surfing lesson, all thanks to Mark and James being such great teachers! We will definitely come back next year and will spend a few more days surfing with them!!!More
Stayed here 4 nights and never wanted to leave !
Its a little hard to find but its so chilled out and laid back, the people that work there are super friendly. Theres also a roof top terrace where you can chill or party all...night if you meet some awesome like minded travellers. The beach is close by and there is always such a great vibe about the place...feels more like you are staying in a house with friends. Breakfast is included and surf lessons run from 7AM in the morning. Definitley worth a trip !More
Stayed here for a couple of nights with friends so that we could go surfing. Staff were friendly and helpful, though the 小幫手could be maybe better briefed on the rooms. But other wise it was a decent stay 👍 location wise, it’s a bit far...from the beach, but still walkable. There’s also a bubble tea shop right beside and a fried chicken shop across the street. Also walkable to both 7-11 and family mart.More
spent 3 nights/4 days at WGLG. I'm a SUP surfer who was looking for a surfshop/guide in Taiwan that work with SUP surfers. Glad I found Marc's WGLG.
Marc the owner is a personable surf guide who took me and my sister to the nearby...local surf spot. The reef break offered some pretty good SUP surfing rides. Currently they have two SUP boards for rent.
I like the vibe of the place - get to hang out with travelers from all around the world.
Do note that this is hostel - while the rooms are pretty nice/clean, the hostel/bar/restaurent is located right on the local main street. Bathrooms are shared. It's very economical. So if you decide to bunk there, do so with proper expectation.More
I ordered handmade pasta, it looks cool but not much flavour, I ask for some cheese and that comes with an extra charge of 50NTD. Not the worse thing I've ever try but not good value at all(like a lot of things in this town).
I tried to get dinner there twice but I was unlucky. The first night food was finished and the second night bar and restaurant were closed but they allowed us to bring our own stuff. It is great to meet other travellers and book excellent...surf lessons (with Mark, one of the owners).More
We really enjoyed our stay in Wagaligong! A cosy place with easy going and very helpfull staff. We could get our surfing equipment and they gave us a ride to the beach. We also rented a scooter next door to explore the area. It's 10min...walking to the beach and the busstation and a little shoppingstore are close. All you need! Thanks Mark and team!More
They do not produce Taiwanese local atmosphere, it is like global place to meet people fro all over the world. The guests are talking in English, German, Chinese, Korean, etc. The menu are also western style, burgers, pizza, etc. It is certainly nice place for...all cosmopolitans!More
