The north wind that blows through the concave terrain of the sand bay brings in ultra high waves at the bay all year round. This has made Zhongjiao Beach and the Shazhu Bay the favorite surfing spot in Northern Taiwan and many surfers are gathered here during the weekends and public holidays. There is a number of clubs that provide surfboard rentals and surfing lessons. Whether you are a beginner or veteran, you will find excitement at this beach. In addition, this is also the best spot to see one of the eight wonders in Jinshan –the “Twin Candles Isle”, which contains a pair of rocks that look like two candles looking at each other.
