“Very nice beach with cheap water sports!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Really nice beach with awesome scenary and cheap water sports available! Have you haggle and bargain with them to the maximum. Do compare the prices around as well. There is two beaches: Da Wan and Xiao Wan. Xiao Wan is more for local, which we regretted not going; while Da Wan is the more exp place to do water sports. We tried jetsking there as well! Really fun experience!

“Peaceful and beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

We traveled to Kenting with our son and daughter in law who live in Taipei City. The light hiking through the Forest Recreation Area was the perfect activity on a warm sunny late June afternoon. The trails are marked in Chinese and English plus they provide a map in both languages. Fortunately we carried enough water for a hot day but there are 2 refreshment areas as well. Live monkeys scurried around in the bushes near the path and we saw numerous butterflies throughout the trek. Two places not to miss: the Fairy Cave and the Sea Viewing Tower. The cave is well lit and contains stalactites and stalagmites, some of which are labeled. There is one way in and the exit takes you to another part of the trail. Some steep stairs but nothing too strenuous. The tower is a large structure with elevator and stair access that provide breathtaking views of the southern most tip of Taiwan. Views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding villages of Taiwan's southern peninsula are amazing. You can purchase drinks and food at very reasonable prices and enjoy the views from a cafe table or go one more level to the open viewing station. A not to miss place in Kenting for sure!

“Beautiful beaches next to rocky hills”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

This is the area of Taiwan, being in the southernmost tip it is warm throughout the year, where you can swim everyday. The beaches are beautiful and the rocky hillside are also provides a wonderful panoramic view of the shores below.

“Kenting National Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Kenting is more than just the beaches and night market although those
are worth going for on their own. We particularly enjoyed the Forest Recreation Area.
For those who enjoy observing plants and wildlife especially birds this place give you
a lot to see and it varies throughout the year. There is a lot of up and downs
so bring water and some food if you plan to stay more than three hours.
Later when it cools down, you can enjoy the beach more because the sand won't be
so hot, then in the evening you can go to the night market which is not much different
than many in Taiwan unless you are interested in pub crawling.
