The BiTou Cape Trail is located in the northeast corner of Taiwan, about an hour ’s drive from downtown Taipei, and is a place to enjoy the coastal landscape of Northern Taiwan.
Although today’s weather is cloudy, there is not much sunshine. But the coastal landscape is just as beautiful.
From Taipei, take the highway to Keelung and follow the coastal road to the northeast coast, passing through Nanya Peculiar Stone.
Nanya Rocks is on the coast in the northeast corner, and it is easy to reach by driving along the coastal road.
In this area, the coast is a sandstone layer. Because of the erosion of nature, the coast with changeable terrain is formed. There are many different interesting rocks here.
What do you think this large rock looks like?
Standing on the rock and watching the waves hit the rock makes people feel shocked.
Nanya Rocks is a very special place, but it is easy to reach. You should come here to experience it when you reach the northeast corner.
Bitou Fishing Harbor
After leaving Nanya Rocks, continue along the coastal road, and soon reached the Bitou Fishing Harbor.
This is a small fishing harbor, the other end of the nose-head corner trail.
Today, enter the BiTou Cape Trail from Bitou Fishing Harbor.
However, it is now noon and it is time for lunch.
The food stalls in the fishing port have delicious rice noodle soup and small rolls, and then start the trail after lunch.
BiTou Cape Trail
The entrance of the trail is on the mountain side behind the fishing port.
There are maps and indicators on the road, and you can enter the trail along the indicators.
Along the trails and stairs, the height has been increasing, and the scenery has changed from under the woods to above the valley.
Reaching the top of the trail, you can see the magnificent view of the valley.
There are gazebos along the trail where you can rest and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Each gazebo has different scenery to enjoy.
The sight of the eyes across the ridges and valleys, looking into the ocean and the sky, we have been stopping to enjoy this beautiful scenery.
The BiTou Cape Trail is laid along the ridge, like the Great Wall stretching across the mountains.
One side of the trail faces the Pacific Ocean and the other side faces the valley.
“BiTou” means Chinese nose, a convex corner of Taiwan’s northeast coast, shaped like a nose.
Here because of the long – term erosion of sea water and wind, so you can see a variety of different sea erosion terrain.
The trail shuttles between the peaks and the valleys, and everywhere is beautiful scenery, and we walk and stop on the trail, spending a long time enjoying the scenery.
Walking along the trail, it will soon be sunset time, we must go down the mountain, we walked back along the route when going up the mountain.
Entering the town from the coast and the valley has a wonderful feeling like another world.
There is a Bitou Cape Park next to Bitou Fishing Port. The surrounding sea area of this park is a popular area for snorkeling. Many people come here to snorkel. The park provides washing equipment.
The night has come, it’s time to leave.
In the evening, the port, with a little light, leaned against the extended mountains, and had a sense of it.
