Kenting National Park, Pingtung County

4.5
#1 of 6 in Wildlife in Pingtung County
The oldest park of its kind in the country, Kenting National Park encompasses the southern tip of Taiwan and features mountains, lush vegetation, and rugged coastal stretches. Pay a visit to this popular national park to explore the wild extremes of the Hengchun Peninsula, where rocky cliffs meat the churning waves. Use the network of paths and trails to view the jungle and its wildlife, including a population of native monkeys. Keep in mind that the park also offers a number of sandy beaches where you can kick back and admire ocean views. Try hitting the waves, or go snorkeling to view the park's colorful offshore coral. Renting a bike or a scooter makes for an efficient way to sightsee around the park, and also helps to reduce fatigue in the tropical climate.

  • Nice walk around the forest park. Very easy walk. Great views from the observation tower. NT$100 entry fee.
  • Very nice country park to go. The most spectacular places are not available on a bus, so renting a car to drive is recommended.
  • Kenting national park is a very beautiful place to enjoy a beach vacation with family and friends .. see the blue sea water is also beautiful lighthouse and stunning coastline scenery! maybe next year i will come here again for a getaway to kenting beach
  • Beautiful mountains. Nice small beaches. Bit dirty after the typhoon but to be expected. Southern most tip is worth a visit. Lots of places to eat and drink and chill.
  • Something for everyone, beaches, restaurants, street food, shopping, nature reserves, go karts, snorkeling. And great weather to boot!
