Other than playing in the water and sand, a range of thrilling, extreme sports such as paragliding and surfing are available. Or take a stroll along the embankment, listening to the crashing of waves, admiring the elegant surfers, observing the paragliders floating above, and savoring the slow pace.
If you’re tired from walking, head over to the odd-looking, bright yellow Wai’ao Visitor Center. There, experience a unique pedicure by immersing your feet in a pool of tiny fish that will eat your dead skin away, or order a cup of coffee and sit back to enjoy the beautiful sea view.

Taiwan surfing in Wai'ao - wow!This was a wild experience for a few Americans on vacation. After educational visits to Tokyo and Seoul, it was time to let loose and have fun surfing! Not even the Uber driver could find our Air BnB at first so that made it even more intriguing! The waves and beach were great, and the fish was being caught fresh every day., we rented bikes and checked it all out ., ham kebabs and surf boards - whoo hoo!
Black SandLeft a review somewhere else for this beach, so I will do it again here as it is probably most appropriate. The black sand is beautiful when the sun is strong, and when the sun is going down. There is also a beautiful mosque-like building surrounded by palms that give the beach a unique vibe. Would definitely recommend this beach, but would recommend walking up the street some from the train station for the best stretch of beach that I personally saw.
Beautiful black sand beach with extra fine and soft sandLovely beach with awesome view of the Pacific ocean. Black sand was extremely fine and soft. Beach was quite clean. Conveniently located just by the carpark. Restaurants and minsus nearby. Great to hang out at the beach followed by a lovely meal. E.g. Wu's Harbour Cuisine was great! Need to make reservations.
Beautiful Black Sand BeachThis is beautiful black sand beach. Wind is strong and sand can be seen blowing toward you. The beach is clean and it gives a relax feeling. There are few fishermen drying and repairing their net along the beach.

Beautiful fine black sand beachWaiao is a great day excursion from Taipei city. I took a train from Taipei main station and the journey is about 1.5 hours. You don't need to buy tickets in advance. Upon arrival at Waiao train station, just cross the road and you will see the amazing beach with roaring waves. There are benches that you can sit and enjoy your packed meal whilst enjoying the ocean view. To get to the tourist information center, standing facing the ocean, turn right and walk along the beach path. If you are wanting to get a drink, you'll be able to get it there. There are also coin operated showers if you wish to clean up. The beach is clean and the water is clear. However, when I was there, it was red flag and can't swim in it. There isn't much else to do around here except the beach and surfing. So if you are not planning to surf, a day excursion from Taipei would suffice. I would perhaps head on to Jiufen for the evening.
