National Park Wildlife Area
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. A visit to Kenting National Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Pingtung County vacation route planner to plot your vacation.

  • The best part of Kenting and also solo visit to this place is you get complete dedication to enjoy the place. The view , the water, the weather, the nature, the people and the day was just perfect whe...  more »

  • The park itself was really nice but was missing the "natural" feel to it. Was more of a big botanic garden whereas i expected more of a walk in wilderness. For sure i got all that on a short hike to t...  more »

  • It's a real beautiful area. The beaches and sights are all wonderful. There are all types of accommodation options too. Food choices are plentiful. Amazing place for a holiday. Surfing cycling and diving are recommended for those looking for a active holiday. I rank kenting above Bali and phuket for beach holidays.
  • Don't waste your time in Kenting 墾丁. Actually, if you have a scooter or a car then you will probably have a good time here. But as a foreigner, you will most likely be stuck with e-bikes or bicycles, so you won't be able to go fast or far and the whole place just won't be any fun. If you like riding a bicycle around some pretty places, skip Kenting 墾丁 and go to Guanshan 關山 instead. If you're already in Kenting 墾丁 then just hire a car for the whole day so you get to see all the scenic places.
  • Blue skies, blue water, beautiful beaches... What more could someone want? There are also some small mountains to be hiked.
  • Beatiful park located near the beach and next to a night market. Definatly worth exploring
  • Nice area, big so you should rent a bike
