    Beautiful day on the coast! The whole family loved it and swimming at Jici beach was definitely a highlight of our trip. Highly recommended.

    Crazy fun day out with Island Life Taiwan! Standing by the golden Buddah and looking out at the see to start the day was a spiritual moment. The whole day was surprisingly cool with a new surprise every few miles. The gorge was AWESOME, the aboriginal village experience special, and Shitiping was sooooooo cool. Highly recommend this tour and Island Life Taiwan. Outstanding.

    If you don’t know what to do while you are in Taiwan, DO THIS! Highly recommended. Our guide Santa knew all the best spots to stop and explore. A truly great time!

    I did two tours with Island Life recently, the Mugua River Gorge Tour and the East Coast Explorer tour. Both were FANTASTIC! I can’t recommend these tours and the team at Island Life enough. Will definitely call them the next time we’re in Taiwan.

    What an incredible day!
    We did the East Coast tour with Island Life in January, and even with the cooler weather it was an amazing time! Our guide Iris showed us so many beautiful places and took us to a great little restaurant by the coast for lunch. Shihtiping is incredible! I highly recommend this tour and the great group at Island Life Taiwan.

    What fun! On a sunny day there is no better stretch of road in Taiwan. Shitiping was a very cool place to explore, and swimming at Jici beach was chilly but beautiful. Green mountains and coastline are always a great combination! Special the thanks to Island Life for showing us so many places we’d never have found otherwise!

    My friends and I did the East Coast Explorer with Island Life and had just an incredible time. We ate smoked flying fish at an indigenous restaurant and saw lots of sea life in the tidal pools at Shihtiping. Cow Mountain beach was like a secret hideaway! We had no idea Martin Scorsese filmed a movie there! Overall an excellent way to spend time in Hualien. Highly recommended.

    Shityping was soooooo great! Our guide Santa (His English name) was a hoot! We ate lunch at an aboriginal seafood restaurant right by the ocean. A fantastic day out on a beautiful coastline. Recommended! Go! Go! Go!

    We told Island Life ahead of time that we like to hike, so they tailored a private Coastal tour for us with a river hike, a mountain hike and some great walks on the coast! Overall a perfect experience. Shihtiping is definitely the highlight, the tidal pools alone there we could spend hours exploring. When we come back to Taiwan next time, we will definitely call Island Life again.
