My individual view, I find not worth to purposely come here unless you passby. In fact i find it quite dangerous. The safety matter not doing good enough.

Go to the shore line near Ching Shui cliff, where there are LOTS of beautiful pebbles. Some look like jade and if you are lucky, you'll find one with rose pink shades. Water was a beautiful blue though skies were overcast. Probably spend 10-15mins here.

Ching shui cliff is really pretty and amazing:) Hualien is one of my favorite county in Taiwan. The view is breathtaking! It is really pretty cliff :) For sure there is no way to compare with other gorgeous cliffs worldwide,but I see it as the best one in Taiwan.

Instead of the usual tourist viewing platform, I went right to the cliff itself with my local tour guide via an abandon track that was used during the Japan Colonial Days. On the track, there was no safety barriers and lots of fallen stones caused by the past typhoons and earthquakes. I will advise not to enter this track if... More

It's a must see in a sunny day or else the water can be gray instead of turquoise which is the key to this gorgeous view! It's the highlight of our Hualien trip.

Worth a stop on the road but not really worth a visit if you've been anywhere else in the world with a cliff. Quite small and the view is just ok. They are improving the road now so its a five minute walk from the roadside car park. Go to the gorge and skip this I would suggest.

About 8-9km north off the turn off for Taroko. There are 2 points (about 1km from each other). The first if on the side of the road. the second is about 500m inside. There is a road but it was closed off due to some work when I was there. Very nice lookout, well worth the detour on the way... More

Qingshui Cliff was a good stop for breathtaking views and breaks in between Hualien and Taipei. There were many places to take beautiful pictures of the Pacific Ocean.

The sight of the cliff is magnificent. Dropping by and taking photos pretty much sum up all the activities that you can do there. The sight itself is worth the trip though.
