Introduction to Jinzun (金樽)

Located in Donghe Township, Jinzun is, hands-down, one of the best surf spots in Taiwan. The area gets its name after its bay that is shaped like an ancient Chinese wine glass. Jinzun features a three-kilometer, sandy beach that is framed by a stunning shoreline. With its unique coastal landscape, strong swells, and long breaking waves, Jinzun has become a surfing mecca, attracting countless surfers from Taiwan and abroad.

While somewhat difficult to get to, this surfing destinations has become famous by the World Surf League QS event held here every November. The competition is called the “Taiwan Open of Surfing,” and attracts surfers from all over the world to compete. Beginning in 2017, the WSL began holding the Taiwan Open World Longboard Championships at Jinzun.

Jinzun raised its standards again in 2018, when it hosted the “World Junior Surfing Championships.” It was the first time that Taiwan had hosted “Double World Championships,” and was also the first time since the establishment of the WSL that there were two world championships taking place in the same venue.
