Remember building sandcastles on the beach as a child? Sand art, an artistic practice utilizing sand and water to mold into artistic forms like buildings or characters, is not just fun—it also unleashes the creativity of both adults and children.

Fulong Beach is recognized by the World Sand Sculpture Association as one of the most suitable areas for sand sculpture. It hosts the renowned Fulong International Sand Sculpture Art Festival, where each year, world-class sand sculpture masters are invited to showcase their talents. The various exquisite and creative sand sculptures always astonish visitors, eliciting “WOW” reactions.

Moreover, on this tour, you’ll journey along Taiwan’s northeast coast. The Bitou Cape Hiking Trail offers a panoramic view of the bay and capes, while the illumination of the Remains of the 13 Levels transforms the abandoned building into a mystic castle. And, of course, you won’t miss the chance to satisfy your cravings with local foods at the Keelung Miaokou Night Market. Come join us and have fun!

Before moving to the next highlight, make a stop at the Shuinandong parking lot. From here, a viewing platform offers a distant view of the illuminated Remains of the 13 Levels. This site, a relic of the once-thriving Shuijinjiu mining industry (encompassing Shuinandong, Jinguashi, and Jiufen), bears a striking resemblance to the mystical castle in the Japanese animated movie, “Castle in the Sky,” reflecting its copper mining and smelting past.
