Chishingtan Scenic Area, Xincheng

4.3
#1 of 43 in Beaches in Taiwan
Just past the airport lies Chishingtan Scenic Area, a city zone dotted with calming parks, tropical palm trees, pleasant beaches, and art. The entire area rests at the tip of a crescent bay, where fishers sell seafood freshly caught in the Pacific. The 21 km (13 mi) trail offers many attractions, including a stone sculpture park, children's playground, botanical gardens, and stargazing section for astronomy lovers. Rent a bike to explore the visitor-friendly neighborhood with ease and examine the maritime culture that envelops it. Due to geological composition, the beach was once considered a stone-collector's haven, but picking valuable rocks recently became illegal. Our Hualien vacation app makes visiting Chishingtan Scenic Area and other Hualien attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • We went to Taiwan by bus. Sandy beach, not gravel beaches. I don't get tired just looking at various stones. Because the cycle load is maintained, it is a place where I wanted to stay more slowly next time.

  • It was rainy day. Luckily it stopped at the time we arrived. The ocean was nicely blue and we really enjoyed our walk on the pebbles beach. What we didn’t like were the many straydogs in the area.  more »

  • Nice place. Suitable for visitors to take bike. It is really worth it since there's no time limit for renting a bike (except until 6pm, the store is close)
  • It is a nice place to visit. One of the highlights in Hualien. Very nice beach and walkways. However, in my opinion that hawkers damaged the natural scene. They should be banned. Second, there are NO rubbish bins so a lot of litterings, plastics on the beach.
