Nature / Park
Just past the airport lies Chishingtan Scenic Area, a city zone dotted with calming parks, tropical palm trees, pleasant beaches, and art. The entire area rests at the tip of a crescent bay, where fishers sell seafood freshly caught in the Pacific. The 21 km (13 mi) trail offers many attractions, including a stone sculpture park, children's playground, botanical gardens, and stargazing section for astronomy lovers. Rent a bike to explore the visitor-friendly neighborhood with ease and examine the maritime culture that envelops it. Due to geological composition, the beach was once considered a stone-collector's haven, but picking valuable rocks recently became illegal.

  • I went to cloudy day. BUT STILL good ! Big wave. I have never seen like that. You can feel Splash ! Nice experience. And you can grab a bite to eat. There are some food shop. I was really enjoy !! Thank you.
  • It's a morning scenery from Qixingtan.. woke up at 4:30 and enjoyed my first sunrise view by the beach.
  • It is really beautiful here. Prepare to get wet if you're going near the waves.
  • Great place to ride a bicycle on bicycle trail. It is better to ride a bicycle after 04 PM at summer time. Bicycle rental shops are near by . Walking along the beach is OK, but beware of big wave.
  • The most beautiful place in Hualien. Moreover, there are coffee stores and seafood restaurants. Great food you can enjoy while surrounded with amazing scenery.
