Badouzi is located southeast of Heping Island, which was originally an isolated island but became more like a peninsula after a power plant was built on the island. This has made the famous Wangyou Valley and Badouzi Coastal Park more accessible than it was before.

The Badouzi Fishing Port was established in 1975 and is the largest fishing port in northern Taiwan. The village next to the port, where the gelidium amansii seaweed and fishing huts are seen everywhere, is a well-known fish-processing workshop in Taiwan. The marine harvests processed here include squids, silver anchovies, big-eye herrings, and flying-fish spawn.

The Wangyou Valley, located between Badouzi and Changtan Neighborhood, is covered all over by grasses which form a graceful contour. Walking down the steps to the valley, with the Badouzi Fishing Port and Keelung Island in sight, visitors will leave their worries all behind.

From the top of the cliffs, there is a trail that will lead visitors down to the beach beneath. Wave-cut platforms and tofu rocks form a rocky landscape all along the beach.

Visitors will be able to reach the hilltop and overlook the deep blue sea by following the road round the hill. When the night falls, the lights of fishing boats and the lamps along the coastal highway will make a splendid night scene. Looking back, visitors will see the mountainous town of Jiufen brightened up by twinkling lights.
