Small, good for just taking photos
Oct 2019 • Friends
Water is clear and not so many people, good for taking photos and you may buy some snacks next to it. The rocks there are black and grey colours, so special but it is just a small coast. Don’t expect too much.

A gorgeous, romantic beach
Sep 2019 • Friends
It was raining heavily on our way to Fenniaolin (from Hualien). The rain finally stopped about 10 mins away from it (we almost gave up). Once we arrived, just a normal fish harbor. However, I spot a stairway going up at the end, so I went up there. Wow, what a fantastic, marvelous beach in front of me. It’s a small beach with some natural rocks forming a “bay”. We spent a lot of time taking many beautiful photos with this amazing, gorgeous view. We are so glad that we came here for this hidden gem. We then went to the restaurant ‘Ah Mian Yi” by the harbor to have a wonderful seafood feast (with very reasonable price”

small place for buying fish and taking photos
Nov 2018 • Friends
This is a small place you can go for buying fish and taking photos. One hour is enough if there is not so crowed. You can buy some fish as this is a fishing harbor, ans some street foods to eat. You can also take some photos with seaside and rock. It is beautiful.

A small place but lots of people on a weekend
Aug 2018 • Couples
Avoid this place on a weekend as the locals love to come here on weekends. And put on your walking shoes if you really want to explore the place as you will need to climb over huge rocks and walk on pebbled beach. Bring a towel to dry your feet if you want to go into the waters for some photos with the rocks.

The beach is renown as it is used in scenes of romantic dramas. You need to drive or get a cab to reach it. The sleepy fishing harbor has a very small restaurant where the food was cheap and taste so fresh.

A Place Needing Your Help To Maintain Her Beauty

東澳粉鳥林 Fenniaolin, East side of Su'ao, Taiwan (Dong Ao)
蘇澳來過約莫三次,這次是在地朋友循著小時候的足跡帶我到這裡。從遠處看不出來是個灣口。來到港口邊還要登上防波堤才會看到另一邊截然不同的美景。而這裡已經有一堆人在玩水了。朋友說小時候這裡是平地人的地方只有放暑假才會走路從山上走來玩耍。平地人與山地人似乎有條界線。大約是以蘇花公路為界線,往山上過去是山地人的地方。往海邊過去則是平地人的地盤。兩邊不是特愛往來。Been here about three times. This time I was led by friend and her childhood memories to Fenniaolin. You really cannot tell there is a hidden cove. Once you reach the little harbor there, climb up the levy in order to see the totally different view on the other side. My friend said it was the "territory" of the plainsmen. They usually walked down from the hills to here during the summer break. There seemed to be a invisible border between plainsmen and aborigines. The border is probably the old Su-Hua Highway. Towards the hills there are more aborigines. The opposite is for plainsmen. The two don't seem to like to deal with each other.

這裡在網路上出名後造成遊客「入侵」。在防波堤左邊的砂礫灘上有許多人開房車, 露營車來釣魚。堤防的這邊則是戲水的遊客。「觀光客只會帶來破壞,但也能讓叔伯阿姨們賺錢。」朋友說出了兩難的心態。Following the exposure on the Internet, tourists "invaded" this area. The pebble beach on the left of the levy is with many people there fishing with their camping vans and SUVs. On the right side, tourists who enjoy water sports. "Tourists only bring damages to the land, but my cousins and aunties all rely on them for living." said my friend with a bit bitterness.

在另一邊的金岳瀑布更是誇張。烤肉的遊客很多,也有些人全副武裝來溯溪的。「我們原住民才不用穿那麼多,穿拖鞋也可以爬石頭上去。」朋友的表弟說著。在入口處的原住民更是將附近的地闢成停車場,每次收費100。另外,還會帶領客人上去溯溪。The situation is worse over Jinyue Waterfalls. Many tourists barbecue food there. Some dressed up for upstream trekking. "We native Taiwanese people never need all that equipment and outfits. We can climb rocks with our sandals." said the cousin of my friend. The owner of the land around the entrance also turned the land into parking lots to collect parking fees at NTD100 per time. He also leads tourists to go upstream trekking.

觀光客來了確實為當地帶來了財富,但是原住民的身影卻悄悄地從這美麗的海灣與山溪中淡出了。Tourists have indeed brought fortune to the locals. However, the native Taiwanese have also faded out from the picture of the beautiful cove and waterfalls.

Beautiful place with a lovely view of the ocean. Not much in the way of restaurants though, so pack a lunch. The water is really beautiful but unsafe for swimming. Great view on the drive too.

Small but Worth a Visit
Oct 2014 • Friends
However small the Fenniaolin Fish Harbor is, the nearby beach makes it quietly attractive and, therefore, worth a visit.

To arrive at the Fenniaolin Fish Harbor, we took #1570 of Capital Bus from Taipei City Hall to Luodong (NT$120, about 1 hour) and transferred to Dongao by Local Express of the Taiwan Railway Administration (NT$31, about 17 minutes). Then we took Highway 9 north on foot and made a right to Dongao Road. From there it was an approximately three-kilometer walk along the shoreline. Picturesque as the scenery was, the walk was almost unbearably long, not to mention the fact that a car after another went fast by and left a cloud of dust and sand.

When we arrived, there were people fishing around the harbor. In addition, there were adventurous tourists (including us) who managed through the gigantic Tetrapod blocks and made it to the rocky beach. The scenery out there was unexpectedly stunning, despite the cloudy weather and the poor visibility.

Since the Fenniaolin Fish Harbor is located in a fairly remote area, transportation is not readily available. You might as well drive unless you can tolerate the long walk from the train station.
