Though there are many plateaus in Taoyuan County, the beach scenery in the county is also gorgeous! Traveling from north to south, visitor will pass by four townships: Lujhu, Dayuan, Guanyin and Sinwu.

Lujhu is the nearest township to Taipei County. For this reason, it is the second most visited beach area for citizens in northern Taiwan, next to the Northern Coast Scenic Area. Though the Beach Recreational Park was a perfect place for citizens to appreciate the coast view, the park was abandoned after the expansion of the North Coast Highway as a result of poor management. However, the completion of the highway also created a number of smaller scenic areas, except that they are smaller and scattered, without central planning.

Dayuan is one of the external ports of Taiwan, it was originally known as the Zuwei Fishing Harbor. After the completion of the CKS International Airport, now Taoyuan International Airport, the fishing harbor developed a tourism transportation industry. The Rainbow Bridge was recently completed to boost the local tourism industry. Moreover, a beach ecological reserve has been created as part of the county government plan. This should attract many migratory birds to visit there every year.

After establishing its fame with the lotus festival, Guanyin has been attracting more and more visitors. The Pashajia Lighthouse and Guanyin Temple in the township are the two famous attractions in the Guanyin Scenic Area. The temple, lighthouse and lotus festival have by far become the representative tourist attractions of the township.

Sinwu, located in the extreme south of the county, is making continued efforts to develop its beach tourism, especially the Golden Shore Plan. Together with suitable publicity from the county government, Yongan Harbor, Yongan Beach Park, Yongan Snow Forest Amusement Park, and the Green Tunnel in Sinwu have made a name for themselves as great natural tourism destinations for the public.

**Pebble beach, deep water and a strong undertow...**

This fine natural harbour occupies a long narrow strip of land backed by mountains. In addition to its harbour, which is one of the five largest in Taiwan, Suao is also known for its rare cold mineral springs (the only other is in Italy) and its lively Nanfangau Fishing Harbour and awesome beach.

To get to the springs, walk about 300 meters from the Su-ao Railway Station to Lengquan (Cold Spring) Road. When you first lower you body into one of the pools you will feel exhilarated by the shock of coolness, but after five minutes or so you will feel warm all over. Besides bathing and drinking, this water is also used in the production of Su-ao's famous jelly cake; in earlier times, it was used to produce naturally carbonated soda as well.

Honeymoon Bay is a small bay on the Pacific Ocean, located at the northeast coast of Taiwan. Southeast of the bay is Gueishan Island, famous to Taiwanese people. Recently, this bay became popular among Taiwanese and foreign surfers. It can be reached by taking the train to nearby Dasi Station of the Taiwan Railway Administration (TRA) and then walking for about 10 minutes.

This bay is in a lunar shape. The northern and southern sides of the bay are full of rocks, while there is a beach in between covered with dark gray fine sands.

Several hundred metres from the seashore, the undersea topography varies a lot, causing waves 2 to 3 meters high. Such waves hit the bay repeatedly, making surfing a common activity here. This bay is the main location for surfing at northern Taiwan. There are also several stalls for teaching surfing.

The beach is a good place for non-surfing activities, such as beach volleyball. However, it suffers from a littering problem.

There were some minor music festivals in summer here during the past few years.

**Beautiful cliffs but not great for swimming **

Bitou Cape is one of the "Three Capes of Northern Taiwan". The other two are Fuguei Cape, the island's northernmost point, and Sandiau Cape, its easternmost point.

Bitou Cape occupies an area of about four to five square kilometers. Most of the sea-eroded landform types along the entire Northeast Coast can be found here, including sea cliffs, undercut bluffs, and platforms. The sea-eroded platforms are thick with mushroom-shaped rocks, honeycomb rocks, tofu (bean curd) rocks, and marine fossils. All of these make Bitou Cape an outstanding natural geological classroom.

A paved footpath leads off near the Bitou Elementary School and onto the cape, giving access to splendid vistas of sea and sky. The path terminates at the tip of the cape, where the Bitou Cape Lighthouse stands. The 120 meter tall lighthouse was first constructed in 1896 and was rebuilt in its present form after being destroyed by Allied bombing during the Second World War. From the lighthouse, visitors can see the waves of the East China Sea lapping against those of the Pacific Ocean.
