Amazing green reef standing at the edge of the crystal clean sea. I can't help taking off my socks and shoes and walk into the cooling water. You will definitely do the same. Trust me.

It’s worth a photo stop. What I really liked about this stretch of coast was the interpretation signs all about the place, in both Chinese and English. But beware the tour coaches... it was mayhem when a few of them pulled up simultaneously.

I reached this place while riding around Taiwan on my bicycle. What a haven of peace! This beach is so special... I have never seen anything like that. This is definitely one of my favorite places in Taiwan.

Beautiful rock formations made by algae. Early spring is usually recommended for a visit when the algaes are green - but I'd say visit whenever; when the tide is right it's transformed no matter whether green or not :) There is a lot of trash...More
