This place wasn't part of my consideration but it was recommended to us by our driver. It is quite nice stop-over before the evening. The lake is relative big but the activity area is quite small, it will be worth a visit on days that...More

This lake is good for a two hour visit. The lake is rather small, so you quickly go around it. It's good to combine with nearby places like the nearby Li Chuan Aqua farm

We were on the way back from Taroko and passed by this lake. Worth spending some time to relax here.

Liyu Lake is easily accessible by bus from Hualien and it has hiking paths and paddle boats for a nice afternoon of fun. The south side of the lake also has many restaurants, often selling shrimp cakes and papaya milk tea.

This place is very pretty with the Lake being surrounded by incredible greenery. It's worth doing a scooter rental for a day to visit around all of the sites, which will cost you around 450 TWD (if you're comfortable doing so). If however you are...More

Generally in China is not allowed to swim on most natural places because it's believed not to be safe. Most of people can't swim and Taiwan is not an exception. So that's probably the reason.
