Just for the halibut, I took the train from Taipei to Fulung today. The beach, when it’s open, looks decent. A bit of surf, but not much. Definitely for very beginning surfers. Shops sold bathing suits, but none that I saw rented surfboards.
Where the heck is this Dahsi everyone keeps talking about, and what train do you have to take to get there? I saw no stop called “Dahsi” all the way down to Hualien. I did find a town called this on one map, but it’s landlocked and near Hsinchu.
Anyhow, if anyone has gone surfing at any beach that’s a short train ride from Taipei, definitely tip me off. When does the earliest train leave? How are the waves? Are there any reef breaks? When is the open season, and how crowded with surfers does the water get on a typical weekend day?
