No.58, Minquan Rd., Taimali Township, Taitung County 963, Taiwan (R.O.C.)
Taimali is the place to come if you love the yellow of flowers, the yellow of the sunrise and the yellow of sand. Flowers? The daylily flowers (金針花) that turn the mountain slopes at Taimali a bright yellow flowers during the August/September summer holidays are renowned. Sunrise? Because of its high altitude, and its sea-facing aspect, those who stay in the accommodation on the top of the mountain only need to step outside to find themselves in the perfect position to see a beautiful sunrise. Indeed, the original Paiwan name for this place means “where the sun rises”. Sand? Taimali is also known for its beach! Palm-studded, with green mountains as a backdrop, it is truly a wonderful place to spend a day. (But be aware, this is absolutely not a swimming beach- the crashing surf and strong undertows hidden beneath the expansive waters of the Pacific Ocean can be deadly!) Stretching approximately two to three kilometers, Taimali Beach if little frequented, making it the perfect place for a solitary or romantic stroll. If you are interested in Taiwan’s traditional indigenous culture, come here during the Harvest Festival in August, when aboriginal skills of living off the land are on show. But come any time of the year to enjoy beautiful Taimali, the town renowned for its views of the east coast, mountains and the Taitung plain.
