Kenting National Park is situated on Hengchun Peninsula at the southernmost tip of Taiwan. It features coral reef topography and offers the glories of both mountains and seas as well as the beauties of lakes and plains. The unique regional features include coral reefs, solitary mountains, ponds, sand dunes, and tropical forests. The area offers topographical scenery of many different types, such as the broken-ridge coral topography near the west coast, wind-eroded formations and limestone platforms on the south coast, collapsed cliffs, and sandy beaches.
Its long and diversified coastline gives Kenting an abundance of oceanic resources, a beautiful and mysterious undersea world, and a classic tropical climate with summer-like weather all year round. It not only contains precious reef scenery but also provides an ideal environment for the propagation of tropical flora and fauna. The coral-filled coastal waters are home to an endless variety of tropical fish.
Since the low-elevation natural tropical environment contains lakes, swamplands, forests, mountains, and other areas that comprise excellent habitats for birds, this is an outstanding area for bird watching during the fall and winter months. In September you can go to Eluanbi to observe the brown shrike. October is the season for watching sandpipers, which you can see in abundance at Manzhou, Lide, the Sheding Nature Park, and the Kenting National Forest Recreation Area. Migratory birds such as snipes, plovers, ducks, and geese fly southward from Siberia, mainland China, Japan, and other chilly areas to the banks of Longluan Lake from October to May, making this a major bird-watching area.
You can also do a tour of Kenting flora and observe the high coral vegetation in the Sheding Nature Park, the coastal forest at Banana Bay, the coastal vegetation in Eluanbi Park, the plains vegetation on Longpan Plain, and the sandy-area vegetation at Windblown Sands.
The Longpan Scenic Area offers expansive vistas and, since there is no light pollution, this is a fine site for viewing the stars. Because of its latitude and the cyclical revolutions of the stars, you can observe the Southern Cross for two hours every night from April through June.
