This is Taiwan's northern-most point, about 26 kilometers along the No. 2 Provincial Highway, a rocky outcrop surrounded by lush greenery. One of the most notable features of this section of the coast is the angular blocks of landsite half-buried in the surrounding sand and soft rock. Another feature of this area is the Fugui Cape Lighthouse, which marks the northern-most tip of Taiwan. Originally built in 1896, the lighthouse was destroyed during the Second World War and was replaced by the present structure in 1949. Unfortunately it is located within an air force radar station and public access is permitted only on weekends, and registration at the sentry post is required.
