Beiguan Tidal Park

Beiguan Park, also known as Lancheng Park, is a coastal park located in the northeast of Taiwan, Toucheng Township. With Nanguan in the south, it is the entrance to Lanyang Plain. During the Qing Dynasty, Beiguan is a military outpost and the Qing government encamped soldiers here. There are 2 ancient cannons of the Qing Dynasty in the park. After millions of years of erosion, there are many natural scenes in the park, especially the rocks. The park also has a great view of the ocean and the surging waves.

Guanhai Pavilion overlooks the Guishan Island, Wai-ao and Beiguan. The Guanhai Pavilion is a perfect place to appreciate the sunrise and the raging waves. The best time to visit Beiguan is when the tide rises or when the sun sets. The waves surge over the rocks with very loud sound. The 2 ancient cannons are over 160 years old, adding to the antique atmosphere of Beiguan.

During the Qing dynasty, Beigang ("northern pass") was a military outpost guarding the Yilan area to the south; today, only an old cannon battery remains to remind visitors of that early mission. The most notable geological features of this area are cuesta formations and tofu rock. Beiguan Tidal Park is situated on the top of the largest of the cuestas; just follow the footpath, and you can see interesting rock formations as you enjoy the pounding of waves against the rocky shore. Food stands in the neighborhood offer a mouth-watering array of snacks and seafood.
