Xiziwan, Gushan

3.6
#4 of 46 in Parks in Kaohsiung
Xiziwan boasts a picturesque beach, a functioning harbor, and historical buildings to explore and observe. Situated west of Kaohsiung City, and bordered by lush verdant hillsides, the town houses the Sun Yat-sen University campus, as well as the Lingsing Temple and the British embassy, perched high on the hilltop (panoramic views of the town and surrounding area can be enjoyed here). During the hotter months the black-sand beach, which sits right on the edge of the campus, transforms into a summer haven, with revelers playing volleyball, swimming in the coral-furnished waters, and bathing on sunloungers. Look out for bicycle hire stalls, which offer a good way to explore the campus and seaside neighborhoods, and consider heading to the beach before nightfall to witness a renowned ocean sunset. Put Xiziwan into our Kaohsiung day trip tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I walked from the Special Zone of the Arts to the ferry terminal. a small port town Because it was raining, I felt a little lonely. There was a shaved ice street near the ferry terminal, and we were able to eat cheap and delicious shaved ice.

  • There is a ferry to cross to Hatazu. If you walk from the MRT station to the sea, you can reach the passing place, so let's pass it to the opposite bank from there. There are many tourist attractions in the vicinity.
