Longdong South Ocean Park & Yacht Harbor

Long Cave (Longdong) South Ocean Park is 16 hectares in area, with Long Cave (Longdong) Cape in the north and Yacht Port in the south. It is the first outdoor natural educational center which combines a yacht harbor, seawater swimming pool and marine exhibition rooms. Tourists can enjoy sailing and swimming and absorb oceanic knowledge here. Long Cave (Longdong) (Dragon Cave) got its name due to the dragon-shaped rock caves stretching in this area. The management bureau has set up a tourist service center and an exhibition room here. The coasts are open year-round.

There are 4 ocean water pools in south Long Cave (Longdong). Tourists of different age groups can swim or enjoy diving here. The best time to enjoy the water is May to October. Every year, divers visit here to appreciate the beautiful fishes and coral reefs. The northeastern coasts are the diver’s paradise and Long Cave (Longdong) South Ocean Park is the best diving site. For those who are interested in oceanic knowledge, the natural geography and intertidal zone here are the best classroom.

The ocean park at Long Cave (Longdong) Park's south entrance is an outdoor education center that combines seashore fun with learning about the marine ecology. It is an ideal spot for swimming, snorkeling, and observing the marvels of the undersea world. Within the park are three former abalone ponds that have been converted to natural seawater swimming pools. The depth of the water varies with the tide, from knee-deep at low tide to three meters at high tide. Since the pools are connected with the sea, they are inhabited by tropical fish, sea anemones, starfish, shrimp, crabs, and other sea life. The pools are open for swimming from May to October. The Visitor Center here contains an exhibition hall with displays that explain the geology and coastal life to be seen along the Northeast Coast. On the platform below the center, you can observe sea-eroded formations and intertidal organisms in their natural environment.
