First, you have to know, there’s very few beaches near Taichung, and there’s not easy to access (no bus, you have to search for it by car, during more than one hour from Taichung City).
Second, Daan’s Beach has been closed to public during 8 years, due to toxic reject in the sea (yeah, awesome…), and has been reopened recently. Hence, there’s no way you can find some hot spot around; the few building here are disused.
It actually looks like a ghost beach.
A grey sad ghost beach.
The water is way too warm and you can walk from 500km from the shore, the grey fine sand, it’s always very windy and you catch all this sand in the face.
There are some small grey crabs, but not nasty, they hide in the sand’s small holes.
