Event Info

Taiwan is blessed with plenty of natural resources that can be used to draw visitors, such as the three kilometer-long golden beach between Yanliao and Fulong in the Northeast Coast. For its soft, highly cohesive white quartz sands, this beach is acknowledged by the World Sand Sculpting Association to be the best for making sand sculptures in Taiwan.

It has been ten years since the Administration held the first Fulong International Sand Sculpture Festival in 2008 to promote sand sculpting art in Taiwan. Each year, more people were drawn to take part in the event. This year's festival (2017) will still be jointly held by the Administration and the Fullon Hotels & Resorts like in the past years. By co-organizing the event with the company, the Administration hopes to instill different energy into the festival while attracting even more visitors.

About the Festival

This year's festival theme is "Celebrating the 10th Anniversary : A Castle of Golden Sands in Fulong." Visitors from around the world are cordially invited to enjoy the grand artistic festival at golden Fulong in the Northeast Coast.

This summer, some skilled sand sculptors will present to the public a magical castle of golden quartz sands that they've built. The castle is said to come from a 10-year-old girl's dreams. You are cordially invited to enter this unique sand sculpture world and take part in this fairytale-like festival. The reception fountains, fantastical garden, happy angels and naughty devils are all here to celebrate the festival's 10th anniversary with you!
