Go to Kenting ( a famous place for tourism in Taiwan ). Rent a scooter and head up to the east coast, it is the only beach with sand. The spot is far away from Kenting city, you can find it in any tourist guide ( Chia le shui or Jia le shui)

If you take the main road south/east from Kenting, you'll go around the tail of the island and come down to this spot. It's just after the first crossroads after the first bridge. Go past the town and turn right into the parking lot. Walk out to the beach.

 Additional Information

Boards are available for renting in a small hotel on the road (you cant miss it)And the boss speaks quite a good english.

The current can be strong on this spot, so be careful.

More:
As you face the beach from the parking lot, there's a little left-hander which peels down from the headland depending on the swell and the tide. It's soft and slow, a good place for beginners.

To your right will be the main break, the rivermouth peak, which is super-consistant. I've ridden it on tiny days with barely a ripple in the water (low tide only), and gotten barreled on waist-high days. It is, of course, way more fun when it's big. The rivermouth is a pretty choice A-frame. Rights are soft-shouldered and slow, good for logs. Lefts are crazy hollow and like a machine under the right conditions.

Further south (right) from the parking lot, across the river, are a bunch of beachbreaks and the cliffs of Taiwan's southern tip. There's other spots there to hunt down if you care to.

Careful if you ride the dirty river out. There's shallow rocks that might break your skegs. It's an easy paddle out, but is it worth the risk? On a bodyboard, sure. Also, if you bring kids/nonswimmers, keep them away, the river current where it hits the ocean is strong and will shoot you right out into deep water.

Atmosphere

The most beautiful place in Taiwan, surrounded by mountains. Wild and roots. The atmosphere is very relax, locals are very friendly, and the overall level is high.

Plus there's now beer back in town! Board rentals and surf shops too. There's usually a collection of logs floating around with people farming it, but only one or two good surfers you need to share with; unless conditions are really good. Be friendly.

The parking lot has great facilities too. The showers have good pressure and are free. Rinse off and have a bbq between sessions. The beach is kind of dirty and it's a long drive from town, so you don't have to deal with lots of tourists from Kenting.

General

This is a pretty good spot. Worth hitting if the TCWB bouys are over 1.5 meters. If you're in Kenting make the pilgrimage.

Surfing at this place? - Hi everybody at this beach
I am working in China and miss the beach (home beach Mallacoota Australia - check it out) Want to hang out somewhere nice and score some waves. So, need a reasonable surfbreak, a cool little hotel nearby and and that's about it. Anything around Jia Le Shui like that? Hope it's pumping & thanks - Gaz
