Xiziwan, Gushan

3.6
#4 of 47 in Parks in Kaohsiung
Xiziwan boasts a picturesque beach, a functioning harbor, and historical buildings to explore and observe. Situated west of Kaohsiung City, and bordered by lush verdant hillsides, the town houses the Sun Yat-sen University campus, as well as the Lingsing Temple and the British embassy, perched high on the hilltop (panoramic views of the town and surrounding area can be enjoyed here). During the hotter months the black-sand beach, which sits right on the edge of the campus, transforms into a summer haven, with revelers playing volleyball, swimming in the coral-furnished waters, and bathing on sunloungers. Look out for bicycle hire stalls, which offer a good way to explore the campus and seaside neighborhoods, and consider heading to the beach before nightfall to witness a renowned ocean sunset. Put Xiziwan into our Kaohsiung day trip tool and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • This time to Kaohsiung Qijin, the inevitable to the Xiziyu sea bath, the ferry down, along the street all the way to the sea, very good to find. At first glance there is a long time, but the age of a long time, many of the applications have been very old, when the people of the light guest's public morality is not good, whether it is on the sand or the walkway, sometimes can find garbage, sand is black, there are various kinds of garbage on behalf of the red walk in this very dangerous, not a place to play with peace of mind. Also before to Go to Australia's Gold Coast, but also Sydney's Manly Sea, that sea, compared with here, one is a day is the earth bar, sure in Taiwan, there is no one-class sea.
