Occupying the entire southern tip of Taiwan, Kenting National Park has over 5 million visitors a year that flock to the area to bike, hike, dive, snorkel, surf, swim, visit museums…you name it! The tropical climate makes the area accessible all year round and accounts for the abundant 1,200 species of plants. The park was established in 1906 by the Japanese and continued by the Chinese. It is at this point that the Pacific Ocean, Taiwan Strait, South China Sea, and Bashi Channel meet. The low hills, sandy deserts, and 650ft (200m) of white sandy beaches also attract people with every recreational interest.
