Had a fantastic weekend in Hualien at a little spot called JICHI BEACH RESORT.
We planned on going camping and took the bus from Hualien station south to Jichi Beach. It takes about an hour. It used to be a camping area with wooden platforms which you could put your tent on. But, when we got there, we discovered they had closed these off to make little chalets, complete with beds and an aircon! It was really amazing!
It cost NT$ 1 500 for 2 people for the night, breakfast included. Also, for NT$250 each, you could order a BBQ which they came and set up for you. Really nice!
The bus from Hualien drops you off just a few metres away from the entrance and the chalets are practically on the beach. You can see the sea from your tatami bed.
I highly recommend this get-away for everyone who feels tired and washed out and in need of a little relaxation.
