Playa Fulong

Fulong Beach – this beach is located at the mouth of Shuangxi River at Santiaowan, Gongliao Township, Taipei County. The beach stretches as long as 3 kilometers with golden sand. It has always been a summer resort in northern Taiwan. Every summer, a good number of tourists would gather here to swim and enjoy the sun. Fulong Beach was famous during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan. 24 hectares in area, Fulong Beach faces the Pacific Ocean and has special golden sand. It is the most famous beach in northern Taiwan, just as Kenting is the most famous beach in southern Taiwan.

In addition to the open beach, the calm and sheltered water of the Shuangxi River, which empties into the ocean here, makes this an ideal spot for wind surfing, canoeing, and other non-powered boating activities. The large sandy beach itself is perfect for swimming, sun-bathing, and other beach recreation. The red-roofed, white-walled headquarters building of the northeast Coast National Scenic Area is located near the entrance to Fulung Beach. Next to the headquarters is a Visitor Center with exhibits, video briefings, and other information on the rich variety of natural and cultural resources on the Northeast Coast.
