Hualien Qixingtan Beach (七星潭) — Where the Sky Meets the Sea

Located at the north end of Hualien City, Qixingtan Beach (七星潭) is one of the most beautiful beaches in Taiwan. The beautiful blue sky meets an endless Pacific expanse. The shore is bespeckled with white and black gravel that is smooth to the touch. A canopy of clouds seems to crown the mountains that embrace the coastline. This is the kind of beach that might be listed as one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.

    The coastline of East Taiwan is amazing and the view is absolutely stunning. I had a roadtrip along the coast and I had to stop every now and then beacuse of the view! @ knycx.journeying

    Hualien Qixingtan Beach looks so charming and more importantly secluded. No doubt you dub it as a heaven on earth. This is a beach we are surely going to revel in, long walks on the beach, watching a sunrise or sunset, just looking at the waves kissing the sand. All the elements of a wonderful time.

    This looks absolutely beautiful and so peaceful too – would love to be there and do some stargazing in particular.

    I’ve heard great things about Taiwan’s nature. The beaches you’ve featured look so peaceful.

  • I have not been to Taiwan and the street food of Taipei is forefront on my mind. Nice to read about other places to visit on the island. Makes sense that there would be nice beaches. Travel Happy.
