Dapeng Bay National Scenic Area is the most famous for its lagoon-side wetland park. This verdant place is perfect for a leisurely walk. And it also has some historical information to offer.

Dapeng Bay is Taiwan’s only bag-shaped lagoon. Its outlet is located under the nation’s only cross-ocean bridge. Because of this unique condition, the lagoon’s ocean water only renews itself every once a month. Due to heavy oyster farming and polluted by family and fish pond waste, the bay’s water can quickly go bad. The government had planned to build at least five plants to purify the water, but then decided to use artificial wetlands, which are more environment-friendly, instead of the plants which are nothing more than machines and concrete. Now the scenic area is famous for the wetlands, which can even discharge floods and increase biodiversity in addition to purifying water. How multi-functional the wetlands are!
