Kenting National Park, Pingtung
(4.5/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • Comfortable beach - great area. The southern tip of Taiwan is very interesting - geology and wind and sun. The beach we used had a nice group of women renting umbrellas and chairs - excellent. 
  • A mix of stunning sea views on one side and rugged hills on the other gives the Kenting National Park a bit of everything for someone getting a little bored with typical landscape views. Added to this...  more »
  • 地處台灣最南端,西臨台灣海峽,東臨太平洋,南臨巴士海峽,是台灣首座國家公園。建議至少花三天時間慢慢探尋。墾丁的沙灘,小灣、大灣等周邊設施都還未達國際級標準,不過情天時海水清澈,風景美麗。我們時間不夠,也為了讓八旬母親能輕鬆出行,所以參加了台灣觀光巴士恆春半島東海岸線半日遊。一人台幣500元,四個小時的行程,非常滿意推薦。行程景點有:港口吊橋、龍磐公園、台灣最南點、鵝鑾鼻、貝殼砂島、船帆石。其中龍磐...  more »

  • 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.
