Why Should I Go?

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.

How to Get There?

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.

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.

Via Jiaoxi Hot Spring Village (宜蘭礁溪):
Take the MRT Brown Line 1 to Technology Building (科技大樓). Exit the station, cross the street, and turn right. After walking for a few minutes, on the left side is the Kamalan bus station (pictured here). After arriving in Jiaoxi (礁溪), take a taxi to Wushigang.
