About Route 2 Taiwan

A low-carbon travel “pearl necklace” linking all the best spots on the New Taipei City coastline from Bali to Sandiaojiao (Cape Santiago) in Gongliao with transportation powered by green energy. Enjoy the youthful spirit on the blue coast, golden beach, and bikeways. Explore the nature in the mountains and culture in the towns.

Create great memories of mountain and sea.

Ride a bike along the wooden bikeway to Hongshulin at Tamsui River estuary. The market at Bali Ferry Wharf is busy and bustling. This is where you can take a ride.
Taste Agei and fishball soup at Tamsui Old Street. Take a nice photo with the red-brick castle at Hongmaocheng. Have a romantic encounter with the orange-purple sunset at the waterfront.
Between the blue sky and ocean, walk on the soft, white sand and feel the cool seawater running through your toes. Enjoy a slow afternoon with a coffee at a nearby café.
Visit Laomei Green Reef and take a romantic photo at Lovers’ Bridge at Shimen Cave. Watch sunset at Fugui Cape Lighthouse and taste delicious seafood at Fuji Fishing Harbor. It will be a relaxing trip.
Zhongjiao Bay is the surf mecca in northern Taiwan. Professional coaches are available even the rookies can fully enjoy the activity. After nightfall, have a nice meal and soak in the hot spring at Jinshan Old Street to relieve the soreness.
Yehliu Geo Park has world renowned strange rocks as well as water sports such as jet skis and diving. Wanli Crab Season is a foodie’s favorite.
Ruifang is a popular attraction for domestic as well as foreign tourists. Visiting the Elephant Trunk Rock by SUP (stand-up paddling) has become a popular activity in recent years. You can enjoy the mountain as well as the sea here.
Ho-hai-yan Rock Festival is full of energy. Windsurfers and surfers are here chasing the waves. There is always so much going on here in summer.


From Bali to Gongliao, free your active soul. All the latest water sports are calling for you, and all the secluded spots are waiting for you to explore!
