Continue going on Provincial Highway 26 and then head north along the coast of Pacific Ocean.
You can get to A-luan-bee Park, Fong-chui-sha, and Jia-la-shuei in Man-zhou Township.
A-luan-bee Park and the southernmost Taiwan
A-luan-bee Park is where Bashi Channel and Pacific Ocean meet. A-luan-bee Lighthouse is the southernmost lighthouse in Taiwan, with the longest range of illumination.
It's one of Taiwan's Eight Scenic Treasures. The park is open all year round. It's open from 6:30 AM to 6:30 PM from April to October and from 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM for the rest of year.
You will often see many tourists taking pictures by the stone. Walk on the coastal trail and check out the myriad tropical plants and terrain of coral reefs during the day. If you happen to stay till the time it gets dark, watch the lighthouse beacon lighting up the surroundings. It's a unique sight to behold.
Once you enter the park, walk up the trail to get to the lighthouse. The area used to be a military fortress heavily guarded by the marine. The lighthouse was at one time the only armed lighthouse in the world due to the attacks from tribes in numerous occasions.
The time of war is a bygone era; barracks were transformed into shops; the observatory became a scenic overlook. It now becomes the responsibility of tourists to protect this miracle of nature.
Fong-chui-sha is a unique attraction in Kenting. The name Fong-chui-sha in Chinese means "sand blown by wind." The coastal sand used to get blown onto the road every year during the northeast monsoon, which is a katabatic wind. The coastal sand piled up and covered about one third of the road.
You still got to enjoy the magnificent sea scenery when looking down from the high ground; however, after the new road construction, the sandy path became blocked. You can still see the sand piles on the roadside.
Gang-kou Port Suspension Bridge
Provincial Highway 26 ends at Jia-la-shuei Park in order to protect Land Hermit Crabs and conserve Alanyi Ancient Trail. The construction of the further projected route came to a halt, you must take a tortuous route to further your way north.
To get to Jia-la-shuei, make a right onto Jia-la-shuei Industrial Road when you arrive at the suspension bridge in Gang-kou Village.
You may want to check out the Gang-kou Port Suspension Bridge before entering the industrial road.
The suspension bridge is also referred to as Lover Bridge. Look toward the mountains from Lover Bridge, and the port river is exceptionally clear.
Look toward the ocean, and there is the spectacular river mouth leading to Pacific Ocean. The little peninsula makes for a good place to watch sunrise and sunset.
Fishing Village Park
There is Fishing Village Park before entering Jia-la-shuei Park. This place is suitable for surfing all year round, making it a surfer's heaven.
You'll see many surfers chasing waves in the vastness of the sea every day. There are many surf homestays, surf schools and surfboard rentals nearby. If you feel like surfing while vacationing here in Kenting, this place is a great choice.
Entering Jia-la-shuei Park, you'll be seeing what's akin to the northeast terrain in Taiwan. The main coastal terrain in Jia-la-shuei was formed by sandstones and coral reefs. Some unique shapes of these rocks and stones along the coast were formed by the erosion of sea waves.
You'll see many stones and rocks, resembling the shapes of various animals and even Guan-yin (referring to the Goddess of Mercy in Buddhism), on the bus tour along this 2500-meter-long coast. Interestingly, right before the final stop, there is a large rock with the shape that's a dead ringer for Taiwan!
