Baisha Bay (Baishawan)—which translates as "White Sand Bay"—is one of the better known beaches along the coast. The bay is located between Linshanbi to the south and Fugui Cape to the north. These rocky promontories are the result of volcanic activity from the Datun Range that sent lava flowing directly into the sea some 800,000 years ago. The different minerals present in the rock have created a mottled rock surface. The interesting features of the rocky waterfronts are the primitive fish traps made from heaped landsite and broken coral, where fish are stranded by the retreating tide. These fish traps can be seen along the coast between Baisha Bay (Baishawan) and Fugui Cape.

Baisha Bay and Heping Island Park have been received the "Svayam Accessibility Awards 2018" under the Category "Most Accessible Tourist Attraction Site" for the initiatives towards "North Coast Accessibility Route" and "Building a Barrier-Free and Accessible Environment at the Keelung Heping Island Park" on Nov. 2018.
The awards are conferred on the organizations and individuals who have shown consistent commitment towards providing accessible infrastructure for all. These awards play a pivotal role in providing the right impetus to the development of inclusive infrastructure and related policies and practices ensuring that accessibility initiatives are sustainable and meaningful. Svayam Accessibility Awards are an effort to promote and recognize the concept of Accessibility and Universal Design in all spheres of our lives to make way for livable communities – in both rural and urban landscape.
