Lovely spot for photos with tree covered mountains immediately leading down to the rocky platforms. Almost has a Hawaii-esque landscape feel to it.

If you are in the East side of the Taiwan island do stop by in Shihtiping . There are several rocks formation that coupled with the waves crashing into it , makes a very beautiful scenery .

The area was beautiful and the rock formations were fun to climb on. I had a short stop here on the way up the coast. It's not a destination but if you're passing by definitely stop.

Awesome scenery. My kids (4 year old and 5 year old) were intrigued, insisted on climbing up the rocks to high up! The waves were cutting into the big rocks and an awesome sight! With the wind blowing coupled with rain-free weather, we really enjoy it here!

We lingered at this place to marvel at the splashing waves that slapped the rocks repeatedly. The rocks are beautifully carved by nature into what look steps. My boys were so enthralled by it all. Must visit. Only to view but sea is inaccessible because of rocks. If you have small kids and over adventurous teenagers, do watch over them... More

I was extremely intrigued by the rock formation at Shihtiping and rate this as my best spot at Hualien to take great photos. In spite of the rain and strong winds, we stayed on for a good 2-3 hours and took so many nice photographs. Do be careful while moving from rock to rock as we are really high up.... More

Scenic view of the ocean and the rock formation brought about by the earth tectonic activities. Recommend to climb up the "stone steps" to reach the highest point for the best pictures.
