Baxian Cave (Baxiandong) is located in the north of Hua Tung Mountain by the coast of Changbin Township. "Baxian" (eight deities) are famous Chinese deities. Fogs drift perpetually around the caves and the interior is damp and misty. As the environment resembles that in the folklore when the eight deities cross the ocean, the caves were named Baxian. In the caves, Taiwan's first prehistoric site was discovered. As the earth's crusts elevated, the mountains were constantly eroded by the sea and 16 caves of different sizes were formed along the cliff as high as 100 meters.

Wooden tour tracks and stone tour tracks lead to all the caves, including Lingyan Cave, Chaoyin Cave, Yong-an Cave, Hailei Cave, Chaoyang Cave, Qianyuan Cave, Gongchen Cave and Kunlun Cave. A prehistoric site was discovered in the highest cave. There is an exhibition center showing the objects found in the site, including bone-made objects, stone objects, etc.
