Surfing in Eastern Taiwan

Surfing in Eastern Taiwan is arguably the best surfing on the Island. The East Coast of Taiwan consists of two counties, Hualien and Taitung. Much of the coastline along this part of Taiwan is a narrow stretch of land pinched between the rugged coastal mountains and the Philippine Sea (or more generally, the Pacific Ocean).

From Jiqi in Hualien all the way down the coast, the waters are warmer, the waves are more consistent and the breaks are more defined. Surfing in Eastern Taiwan takes the cake with the best surf spots in Taiwan.

While the surfing in Eastern Taiwan has options for most skill sets. Compared to some surfing destinations in Northern Taiwan, these waves are more suited for surfers with a bit of experience.
