Located about five minutes to the northwest of downtown Jinshan, Zhongjiao Wan Beach is the most popular surfing beach in the north of Taiwan. And thanks to the increased attention the surfing crowd has brought to it in recent years, the beach’s facilities and the surrounding area are starting to see some development
The sand at Zhongjiao Wan is golden yellow and is usually quite free of debris. Overall it is one of the cleanest beaches in the neighborhood, with the only exceptions being Baisha Wan to the northwest and Dawulun Beach to the southeast.
Most of the time you can expect to see a little wave action going on at Zhongjiao Wan. However, there certainly are times when it can be far too calm to do any surfing. The color of the water is quite nice as well, and when the sun is right you can get some of the nice azure bluish tints here and there; however, it is not as vivid as Dawulun Beach.
