Dapeng Bay Water Sports

Michella Jade Weng, Host:
Hi everyone, welcome to Time for Taiwan. My name is Michella Jade Weng. Dapeng Bay, Pingtung, is one of the best kept secrets for water sports in Taiwan, but there are also plenty of other things to do in the area. And a great way to get a preview of that is by going up in the air and getting an aerial view.

During a short, 10-minute ride in a light-sport aircraft, you can see the coast, one of the largest lagoons in Taiwan, the bicycle path that goes around it and the country's only movable bridge, just built this year.

There are only two legal light-sport aircraft bases in Taiwan, one of which is this one. Here, you can take a tour in the sky, or even learn how to fly.。

So you ease the tricycle slash ski contraption into the water, push and just keep jumping and pumping. It’s much easier said than done. After three tries, I've only managed to make it past the dock.

Though windsurfing hardly looks any easier, let's give it a try anyway. OK, standing up is not a problem, well, not really… Getting moving isn't so difficult either, but turning around and coming back home… help!

Alright, let's go do something that I can leave to the coach - sailing. Since Dapeng Bay is a lagoon, the waters don't get too rough, which is great for water sport beginners. And since it isn't that popular yet, there's plenty of space for everyone.

If you're not the sporting type, you can always just hire a boat and enjoy the view. One of the newest attractions here is this movable bridge that opens up to let tall boats in and out of the lagoon.

From sashimi to grilled fish heads, bluefin tuna is served in several ways here, and its freshness is sure to leave any fish lover asking for more. Good food, lots of fun in, around and over the bay, and not that many people, Dapeng Bay really is one of the little known jewels of southern Taiwan.

大鵬灣海陸空樂園遊樂之旅

大家好,歡迎收看 Time for Taiwan ,我是翁郁容。屏東大鵬灣是個玩水的好去處,不過這邊還有其他有趣的玩意兒可以體驗,包括輕航機。

在空中短短10分鐘,可以看到海岸,全台最大潟湖之一,環湖自行車道,還有今年才完工,全台唯一一座的開啟式橋。

另外,全國只有兩個合法輕航機基地,大鵬灣就是其中之一。在這兒,不只可以當乘客看景色,更能學開飛機,好刺激。

來到大鵬灣,除了可以在上空飛翔,騎腳踏車環灣,還可以下水玩水上遊戲,這就是最新的玩意兒,水蜻蜓。

所以就把這個三輪水上滑板輕輕放下去,推出去,然後邊跳邊壓就好了,但真的有點比想像中還困難... 經過三次練習,只能划到超過碼頭一點點...

雖然風浪板看起來也沒有多容易,還是來試試看吧。站好,沒問題。其實,還是有點小問題。往前進,似乎OK喔,但現在變成出得去,回不來,救命啊!

好吧,來玩個能讓教練操作的東西吧,帆船。因為大鵬灣是個潟湖,風浪不大,特別適合初學者。還有,因為還沒有很多人知道,這裡不用人擠人。

不過如果您比較喜歡放鬆讓別人出力,其實也能搭搭重型帆船看看風景。這邊最新景色之一,是這座能讓大船進出入的開啟式景觀橋。

玩了一整天的水,真的是餓翻了,所以接著我們要去吃黑鮪魚大餐。

生魚片、烤魚下巴,這裡的黑鮪魚有很多吃法,愛吃魚的人,吃了都念念不忘。好吃、好玩、遊客又沒那麼多,大鵬灣真的是個南部觀光的祕密好景點。
