Although I’ve heard Penghu and Green island are terrific, the Kending beaches are the best I’ve seen in Taiwan. Not quite the Thailand islands yet, but in some spots it’s as inviting as the Goa beaches. There are some really nice beaches in Kending.
It could have been nicer if they confined all water sports to specific area and left the beaches to offer nothing but their natural beauty.
Still, it’s wonderful to see the tropical white sands and clear waters in southern Taiwan.
There are some local landmarks, like the lighthouse at the most southern spot in Taiwan, where Spring Scream 2009 was taking place :
the green energy windmills…
the really ugly nuclear plant (I’ll spare you), and this thing (if you know what it is, then you know what it is) :
The views around Kending are breathtaking.
There are some above average diving spots, if you’re interested, and some really good seafood for very cheap…
