Fulung Beach, Xinbei
(4/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Fulong Beach, also known as Fulong Bathing Beach, is located at Fulong Village, Gongliao District, New Taipei City at Northeastern Taiwan. It is the outlet of the Shuang River.The sands there are golden, which is rare in Taiwan. Nearby is a camping site named Longmen. This beach is a favorite in the summer for people living in northern Taiwan.The Shuang River divides the beach into inner and outer parts. There is a footbridge named Rainbow Bridge linking the two parts. However, the watercourse of the river varies every year to some extent; sometimes the bridge is functional; other times it is not, because the seaside end would be in the river or in the sea.Recently the sands of the beach have been diminishing year by year, and the coastline is moving shoreward; i.e., the beach is shrinking. It is believed to be related to the staithe built for the Fourth Nuclear Power Plant of Taiwan for equipment disembarking.Since 2000, the Hohaiyan Rock Festival has been held here for 3 to 5 days in the summer. Normally, it takes place in mid-July, but sometimes it has been delayed due to typhoon interruption or damage to the band shell facilities. Also the watercourse of the Shuang River sometimes changes shape or size, influencing the location of these temporary band shells.Transport linksPublic transportFulong Beach is accessible as follows:Railway:Taiwan Railway Administration (TRA) Fulong StationBus:Between Taipei City and Yilan County: Taipei-Luodong Seaside Route of Kingbus (國光客運) to the Fulong StopBetween Taipei City and Hualien County:Taipei-Hualien Seaside Route of Airbus (大有巴士) to the Fulong StopFrom Keelung: Keelung-Fulong Route of Keelung Bus (基隆客運) to the Fulong Stop

  • From the Taipei main station by train go to Fulong station is convenient. From the train station can be reached on foot. Station has bike rental and mountain along the shoreline and include cycling, so rather than just swimming in summer, can be enjoyed in other seasons. A suspension bridge and there is also a canoe ride.

  • 從福隆火車站步行一小段距離即可到達,要受門票,旁邊就是大飯店,冬天因東北季風,不太適合去。夏天的沙雕季人山人海,但超熱,要有曬昏的心理準備。 
  • 每年的沙雕展總是吸引很多人潮前往,不可思議的精緻沙雕,每個作品都栩栩如生,很佩服原創者的構思及巧手,雖然路程有點遠,但也值得一遊。

  • Nice beach, not far from Taipei. Rescue guys are a little annoying, doh. Better to walk far from them and swim carefully aside.
  • Fantastic golden sand beach. Luckily we have witness the sand sculpting which is stand still. The place is beautiful and relaxing.Nice view
  • Great beach with nice sand. 100 entry fee per person.
  • Very night beach, worth to visit. Although live guards are annoying indeed. If you want to get to the beach with the first bridge from the town, be prepared to pay 100 TWD just for the entrance (hotel area) that's where the life guards are. Next time i rather take the distant bring and stay at unguarded part
  • The most popular beach around Taipei. Entrance fee: 100 ntd. There are showers and toilets but no shade.
