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.
