Lanyu’s shoreline is mostly covered by reef rocks or stones, and Shell Sand Beach is one of the few beach with finer granules of sands. With a closer look, you’ll discover all these tiny and white sand to be pieces of coral reef fragments.
Walking carefully through the screw pine forest, you will soon enter an area that has broad view, stands far away from tribe and roads, and has nearly zero light pollution. At a nice weather night, you can see the sky full of sky everywhere on Lanyu, and Shell Sand Beach is especially a private spot for watching stars among all.
There are so few light sources nearby that it is recommended to bring a flashlight with you when visiting at night. The forest isn’t dangerous, but flashlight would come handy for avoiding the spiky screw pine leaves along the lane.
