Just the other day I'm talking to my friend that I want to eat ice cream in Qixingtan but were not in the mood going out there. But for no reason I just feel going out somewhere on the next day. Yeah, I'm in the mood so I grab the motor key, sun glass and summer hat for sun protection. I search some places near me and got this place, the Qilaibi Lighthouse/Chilaibi Lighthouse. Ten Minutes away from home. And it is very near to Qixing Scenic View or most people say as Qixangtan/Chisingtan.
Qilaibi Lighthouse was located in Hualien County, Taiwan.The Lighthouse stand in Northern part of Hualien Port. It was built between the Central Mountain range and the Pacific Ocean. The tower is in pentagonal prism with balcony and lantern. It is said that the original lighthouse was built by the Japanese but it was seriously damaged during WWII. The newly lighthouse was just rebuilt in the same exact lighthouse base to help those nearby Hualien Harbor. The lighthouse is not open to the public.
Nearby is the Hualien Environmental Park and it seems that this park was not really maintain because of it's tall grasses but when you go uphill you can see the lighthouse from there. I suggest go there sunrise and sunset. It has the romantic feel looking the sky and the horizon of the Pacific Ocean. I just spent about 10 minutes or 15 minutes because it was freaking hot that day.
I enjoyed the dazzling deep blue color of the ocean and the green landscape surrounded to the lighthouse.
