Located within the central mountain range and Pacific ocean in Hualien county, Taiwan stands the Chilaibi Lighthouse 奇萊鼻燈塔.
While the original 7.6m high Chilaibi lighthouse was built by the Japanese during their reign way back in 1931, the tumultuous times and bombings during World war II caused extensive damages which resulted in the rebuilt of the white Pentagonal concrete building lighthouse in 1963 in the exact same location to aid Hualien harbour increase its standing as an international port.
While it seem that vast area of lush greenery with a sparkling white lighthouse in the background alongside crystal clear water of the Pacific ocean makes a very scenic spot for recreational activities, be sure to slather on thick amount of sunscreen, do not throw caution to the wind as there are no shelter whatsoever at Chilaibi lighthouse and its surrounding area. Visit during the cooler weather to ensure happiness in maximum capacity and better selfies.
