Wushigang Beach, Wai'ao - Surfing Spot 烏石港, 外澳
Northeast Taiwan's most popular surfing spot, Wushigang is perhaps best known for its fine, volcanic-black sand, great waves, and neighbouring fishing harbour.
Dotted along the beach are tents set up by local businesses that offer surfing-related services such as rentals and instruction as well as just a place to chill out with some friends.
The beach is located just north of Wushigang Harbour (烏石港).
Since this beach is located in Yilan County a bit outside Taipei City, there are a few different ways to get there.
Take a local train (區間車) from Taipei Main Station to Wai'ao (外澳), then cross the main road to the beach.
FASTEST By Intercity Bus:
From MRT Lines 1 5 Nangang Exhibition Center (南港展覽館), take Kuo-Kuang bus 1877 to Wushi Port, fare NT$120 one-way, NT$220 roundtrip.
