Xiziwan, Kaohsiung
(3.6/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Xiziwan boasts a picturesque beach, a functioning harbor, and historical buildings to explore and observe. Situated west of Kaohsiung City, and bordered by lush verdant hillsides, the town houses the Sun Yat-sen University campus, as well as the Lingsing Temple and the British embassy, perched high on the hilltop (panoramic views of the town and surrounding area can be enjoyed here). During the hotter months the black-sand beach, which sits right on the edge of the campus, transforms into a summer haven, with revelers playing volleyball, swimming in the coral-furnished waters, and bathing on sunloungers. Look out for bicycle hire stalls, which offer a good way to explore the campus and seaside neighborhoods, and consider heading to the beach before nightfall to witness a renowned ocean sunset. Put Xiziwan and other Kaohsiung attractions into our Kaohsiung itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • 傍晚时来到西子湾看落日,很美。海湾旁人不多,不过有很多情侣,大家感觉都很有爱。我们在西子湾旁边看落日,拍照,秋天的风吹在身上很舒服。 
  • 沿著中山大學旁,走進細綿的沙灘,遠眺對面的燈塔,整個港灣盡入眼簾,漫步沙灘,吹著海風,戲水消暑,到處充滿活力氣息。高雄的八大美景之一,值得一遊。
