Kenting

Kenting is in the southern part of Taiwan. It is a popular beach area bordering on the tropical region of Taiwan. Do not hesitate to rent a bike and explore the (flat) surroundings.
Kenting is also a National Park of Taiwan, with many tropical plants such as palm trees, a few banana trees, and even sugar canes. Good place to swim and dive.
The park covers about 181 square kilometers of land, 152 square kilometers of sea, weighing in at 333 square kilometers combined. It is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the Taiwan Strait and the Luzon Strait. 90 kilometers from the city Kaohsiung, the park can be easily accessed by road, rail or air.

The landscape boasted by Kenting National Park is divided into two parts by the long and narrow Hengchun Longitudinal Valley Plain that extends from north to south. With coral sea cliffs teemed with fringing reefs along the west coast, the park features a large number of mountains in the north, and coral tablelands and foothills in the south. The plain, which is formed by fault valleys, has a vast lake called Longlyuantan, together with rising coral tablelands and limestone caves to the east. The east side of the coral tablelands features unique sand rivers and sand waterfalls formed by the combined effects of winds and rivers, as well as coral cliffs, sunken caves and stalactites.
