Fulong Beach 福隆海水浴場

Anchor point

Introduction

Fulong Beach is located at the mouth of Shuangxi River at Santiaowan, Gongliao Township, Taipei County. The beach stretches as long as 3 kilometers with golden sand. It has always been a summer resort in northern Taiwan. Every summer, a good number of tourists would gather here to swim and enjoy the sun. Fulong Beach was famous during the Japnaese occupation of Taiwan. 24 hectares in area, Fulong Beach faces the Pacific Ocean and has special golden sand. It is the most famous beach in northern Taiwan, just as Kengting is the most famous beach in southern Taiwan. In addition, the plants and ecological environment near the Shuangxi River are educational for the visitors.Fulong has long been the most popular swimming beach on the Northeast Coast. In addition to the open beach, the calm and sheltered water of the Shuangxi River, which empties into the ocean here, makes this an ideal spot for wind surfing, canoeing, and other non-powered boating activities. The large sandy beach itself is perfect for swimming, sun-bathing, and other beach recreation. The red-roofed, white-walled headquarters building of the northeast Coast National Scenic Area is located near the entrance to Fulung Beach. Next to the headquarters is a Visitor Center with exhibits, video briefings, and other information on the rich variety of natural and cultural resources on the Northeast Coast. Fulong Beach is currently under the management of the Taiwan Pineapple Co. Various types of equipment are available for rent, including kickboards, inflatable swimming rings, and four-person rubber boats. A variety of other water and beach activities are offered for a fee.

    Beach is closed

    2019-10

    We went to Fulong Beach on October 2nd, unfortunately the beach was closed (no lifeguard on duty) from October 1st to May 31st. We didnt had to pay to walk over the bridge which was great.. but once on the beach... lots of garbage, plastics, clothes, tires and bicycles washed up on the shore. It was very disappointing.. I believe it was due to the Typhoon.. its a very beautiful town, but the beach needs more care.

    Day trip from Taipei

    There is a 100 fee to get on the beach. Not a big deal but beaches should be free. Swimming is non-existent, unless you go far left or right from the lifeguard station. Otherwise, people MUST stay inside the swimming buoys that allow you to go up to about your knees. Beach was clean when I was there.

    Somewhat Dirty

    2019-07

    We visited here as a group during our study abroad (with some local students as well). We had to pay to park but it was only 100 NTD. You also had to pay to enter the beach and this is where things got uncomfortable. The entrance was 100 NTD or 50 NTD if you were female and willing to wear a bikini. This made several of the females in our group really uncomfortable so we elected to pay the full price and keep our clothes on. In fact, i was wearing a bikini that day but ended up swimming in a t-shirt because I felt so uncomfortable about the entire thing. The sand is nice, but we walked down the beach a little to get away from the crowds and it was quite dirty a little ways past the sand castle exhibits. There was a TON of plastic and garbage that had washed up on the shore. I couldn't believe how much of it there was. I think, perhaps, that we had walked past where most beach-goers sit, but it was still very striking to see. It didn't affect our ability to play in the water, though. I wish we had brought more trash bags, but we only had one small one. We did what we could, but you could tell that no one had cleaned that beach in quite a while.

    OK for the Weekend if you have No Place Else to Go. Retro place from the 80s. Good Seafood

    2018-08

    Was looking for a short getaway for the weekend from Taipei city. This beach is easily accessible by train from the Nangang railway station. You have to take the train heading north. The beach is accessible through a resort and across a long bridge. The area for swimming was pathetically small. Not for serious swimmers. There are several seafood restaurants where you have to take a bus to. The prices of the seafood was reasonable, not very cheap like in Thailand or Malaysia but affordable.

    Abandonned and dirty

    2019-01

    Drove here from Taipei on january 4th 2019. Most probably low season. Almost all businesses closed. Hotel accomodation looks abandonned. Beach is very dirty and full of plastics. Entrance fee 40£. The way from Taipei to here is nice, the see is nice despite the beach.
