“Taiwan is blessed with plenty of natural resources that can be used to draw visitors, such as the three kilometer-long golden beach between Yanliao and Fulong in the Northeast Coast. For its soft, highly cohesive white quartz sands, this beach is acknowledged by the World Sand Sculpting Association to be the best for making sand sculptures in Taiwan.
It has been nine years since the Administration held the first Fulong International Sand Sculpture Festival in 2008 to promote sand sculpting art in Taiwan. Each year, more people were drawn to take part in the event, and in 2015 alone, more than 300,000 visitors joined the festivity. This year’s festival (2016) will still be jointly held by the Administration and the Fullon Hotels & Resorts like in the past years. By co-organizing the event with the company, the Administration hopes to instill different energy into the festival while attracting even more visitors.” (Northeast and Yilan Coast National Scenic Area Administration)
