Longdong is the largest bay on the Northeast Coast. It is favored with clear water and abundant marine life, including large numbers of colorful tropical fish, making it an out-standing spot for snorkeling and scuba diving. Also, the schools of fish that gather here make the bay a highly popular rock-fishing area.At the southern edge of the park, the sheer sandstone cliffs of Longdong Cape have become the premier rock-climbing destination of northern Taiwan. Since the cliffs are only 30-odd meters high and have a wide variety of surface forms, they are perfect for training in rock-climbing skills. At the same time, this area offers stunning vistas of Bitou Cape, Sandiao Cape, and Aodi Bay.

    Amazing Coast Scenery Trail


    Longdong Bay Cape Trail (龍洞灣岬步道, Longdongwan Cape Trail) is located in Gongliao District of New Taipei City. It is one of the attractions on the northeast coast of Taiwan. It is 49 km (30.4 mi) from Taipei Railroad Station and takes about an hour by car. The Longdong Bay Cape Trail is a scenic trail that connects two largest capes on the northeast coastline - Bitou Cape and Longdong Bay Cape. This trail also links these two different geological eras, one took place six million years ago and the other 35 million years ago. The origin of the name Longdong (dragon’s cave) came from the shape of the coastline. It looks like the shape of a dragon lying down. Along the coastline are a series of hard, steep rising sandstone formations. We went to Longdong Bay Cape Trail twice and really enjoyed the scenery of the cliffs and the vast East China Sea and Pacific Ocean along the trail. It is a 3-km (1.86 mi) trail. We started our hike from the Longdongwan side near the Hemei Elementary School. There is a parking lot on a small branch line off the No. 2 province road. From the parking lot, there is a short uphill path before you are right on the Longdong Bay Cape Trail and can see the sea. I recommend a side path on the left we took just before we could see the sea. The beginning of the path was a forest tunnel and was a wonderful place to avoid the sun and heat, especially in the summer. There was a flat field once we left the tunnel. Make sure you go to the far end, and you can see a small observation platform which gives you an incredible view of the cliff along the coastline. We also saw some crazy young people jumping from the rocks and diving into ocean below from a distance. Back on the main trail, we saw wayside pavilion where we could take a rest and enjoy the different views of the coastline and cliffs. If you are geology lover, you will notice the rich and diverse geological views along the trail. We saw the Xilingyan Temple while approaching the end of the trail. The original temple was built during Emperor Jiaqing of the Qing Dynasty. The present building is a reconstruction. The final trail is the 97 steps down to the Longdong South Ocean Park. Longdong area is divided by the Longdong Tunnel into two areas, the Longdongwan Park and the Longdong South Ocean Park. Nearby is the Longdong Rock Climbing Site which is located in the Longdong Cape near the Hemei Elementary School. It is the most popular natural rock-climbing site in Taiwan. The trail opens all year long and is free to visit. Rogue waves are likely to take place during northeast monsoon months (October – March). To ensure your own safety, please do not carry out any leisure activity near the shores.

    Taiwan’s northern most tip


    We came to this spot just to say we were at the Northern most tip of Taiwan. I am not a hiker or climber so I had no expectation of climbing or hiking but just to observe that scenery. It was quite a scene with the high cliffs and beautiful blue ocean. It was very foggy the previous day in Taipei but this day was perfect. I’d recommend this area if you are a thrill seeker or nature lover. We just love to admire nature and we sure did.

    절벽과 바다가 어우러지는 경관은 세상에서 가장 아름다운 곳입니다. 대만은 자연이 아름다운 곳이 많아서 다시 한 번 가고 싶어요.

    垂直千仞壁 鬼斧神工削


    此行至久聞其名的龍洞灣岬步道,停車於西靈巖寺旁空地,步行不遠,即能看到前方海濱宛如鬼斧神工的垂直山巖、壁立千仞壯闊景觀! 巖壁上有涼亭,底部海蝕平台隱約有微小人影,距離不遠即可走到涼亭、觀景台,展望碧海藍天,對面鼻頭角清晰可見,繼續循著步道下行,則可通到龍洞灣旁的和美國小,沿著一旁八月曾經來過的海邊亂石路前行,時序入秋,濱海礁岩少了戲水人群,走了一段,驀然回頭,卻見山壁上很多身手矯健的攀岩蜘蛛人,不期而遇二十多年前就曾聽說的著名龍洞岩場! 回程走至路邊有著瘋狗浪警告看牌的草叢小徑,循路下走,局部路段陡峭,旁有熱心山友繫繩可拉,年紀太大或太小不適行走,路底靠近海邊的山壁也有攀岩者正在訓練身手,踏著濱海並無明顯路徑的亂石而走,正值天氣轉變,波幅大的能量波浪,不時隨機地狂潮拍打岸石,激起巨大浪花,不遠原直視視線不可及處,轉身驀然一個年代久遠的巨大海蝕洞突現眼前,不覺令人發出WOW的讚嘆,一旁另一個被崩落岩石遮蔽,形狀相對較不明顯的更大海蝕洞,也是歷經千萬年洗鍊,難得機緣巧合,才能得見的壯麗景觀! 可謂是~ 龍洞岬步道 山頂涼亭高 步道另一側 草叢小徑走 山谷亦岩場 巨大海蝕洞 展望風景好 崖底人渺小 通和美國小 海岸看波濤 局部路陡峭 乍見WOW驚叫 垂直千仞壁 海天一色藍 鄰龍洞岩場 路邊看板立 海濱亂石走 千萬年神跡 鬼斧神工削 對望鼻頭角 攀壁身形矯 瘋狗浪警告 變天狂浪潮 難得機緣巧 正如看牌上的瘋狗浪警告所言,前方緊鄰海水的隱約路徑,不時有似乎會把人打入海中的大浪襲來,麗景雖佳,安全第一,於是折返!第二天報載鼻頭角祕境海邊有瘋狗浪帶走兩人,連帶的報導提起龍洞灣岬步道八年前也曾有瘋狗浪帶走步道健行活動多人的事件,每個海浪的細微差異非人眼解析度能明確辨識,有機會來此不可不慎!
