White sandy beaches and swaying palms are perhaps not the first things that come to mind when you think of Taiwan, but that’s exactly what you’ll find in the Kenting National Park. This natural treasure has some of the best surf beaches in the region, as well as diving, jet-skiing and lots of other seaside fun.
The park’s beautiful scenic landscapes, with dramatic rocky outcrops, lush jungles and cliffs offering outstanding views over the sea and shoreline, make this a popular hiking destination.
Visit traditional fishing villages during the day and at night enjoy the numerous dining options and night markets in the area’s towns.
Kenting National Park forms the southern tip of the island of Taiwan and can be reached by high-speed rail from Taipei in just 2.5 hours. There is a range of accommodation options from camping to luxury resorts. Some beaches are privately run and charge admission.
