Kenting National Park, Pingtung
(4.5/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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 vacation route planner to plot your vacation.

  • Kenting national park is a stunning place - but it is large. Encompassing beaches, mountains, viewpoints and tourist sights, the park is not like normal ideas of a park. Eluanbi (tourist stop, but bea...  more »

  • Stunning beach with plenty of sun and space to chill and play in the waters. Great for family or just fun with friends. Good place to picnic too or grab some bubble tea and food from nearby!

  • The southern tip of Taiwan is rather uneventful. After walking up and around through the bush you end up at a small platform looking at the ocean. We were expecting to be higher up, but were maybe only 8 - 10 meters above sea level. Sharp coral all along the coast prevents you from approaching the water (as do fences) so after arriving at the lookout and then snapping a photo of the concrete marker the government put there, there's nothing to do but go back. There's a park you can pay 60ntd to enter, but it's very similar in impressiveness. I'd recommend skipping these scenic spots and just spend more time at the local beaches and mountain hikes.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful park, need to set aside a day to explore more next trip.
  • Jewel of Taiwan, a natural paradise for taking in the diverse flora of Southern Taiwan. If you are familiar with Tolkie' work, you can feel like you are in Fangorn forest and deeper in even Mirkwood :). a must see for anyone who braves the long road down to Kenting. Just make sure you go early and before 3pm latest, there are no lights on the roads if you are there beyond sunset, it can be tricky. Also make sure not to go after heavy rains as most spectacular caves might be possibly closed due to flooding.
  • Great views, I would recommend to get there early in the morning to avoid crowds and heat. There is a little walk, a great place to take pictures.
