|Hengchun Old Town
This 100-year-history Hengchun Old Town is Taiwan’s most well-kept ‘level two’ ancient site. After surviving natural disasters and wars, only four city gates full of ancient history are left.

Mt. Dajian, with an altitude of 318m, rises as an isolated rock and dominates the landscape with its dramatic presence. It is the most prominent landmark inside Kenting National Park, most well-known for its majestic positioning and view climbing is currently not allowed.
Having stood long in the sea, the 18m tall Chuanfan Rock is a reef that tumbled from the nearby tablelands. When looking out into the distance, Chuanfan Rock’s spectacular view is like a sailboat. To many visitors, upon a closer look, Chuanfan Rock also shares a resemblance with former US President Richard Nixon.
The 500m long Baisha Bay is located at the northwest coastline of Maobitou on the west side of Hengchun Peninsula. Not only can visitors participate in numerous water activities, they can also enjoy the wonderful natural scenery of the sun disappearing into the horizon and unfolding into a starlit night sky.
Limestone landforms such as collapsed cliffs and seeping caves are commonly found bordering the Pacific and beneath expansive grasslands. When walking among them, you must watch where you step. At Longpan Park visitors can also enjoy a breathtaking sunrise. From April to June each year, visitors can also see the rarely seen Southern Cross in the night sky above the sea to the south.
The park’s Eluanbi Lighthouse has the strongest luminous power of any light in Taiwan, hence its name “The Light of East Asia.” It is most well-known to locals as the light that opens the sea and guides fishermen home.
