Laomei Green Reef


This is truly a unique spot, as it is the only place in Taiwan with such an incredible view, and has therefore become one of the most-frequented scenic spots in northern Taiwan in recent years.

The reefs of various shapes were form by wave-cut volcanic lava through the years, with ditches in between. Every year in April and May, green algae flourish on the surface of the reefs, forming this unique magnificent view. Besides making sure that you come in the “right” months, you also need to know the correct low-tide hours of the day of your visit in order to witness this miraculous scenery.
