 The Waiao Service Area is located at the south entrance of the old Northeast Scenic Area. When the scenic area was expanded to be the Northeast and Yilan Coast National Scenic Area, it was also refurbished into a full-sized service zone. August 2008, the Waiao Service Area was inaugurated. Designed by renowned architect Kris Yao, the new center faces the Turtle Island and is blessed with a special wetland beach where visitors can take a scenic walk. Some say its service center looks like a paraglider canopy, while other say it’s like a boat. Why not see this eye-catching yellow building that leans against the blue sky and the green sea by yourself?

 

There is a hiking trail refurbished from the old embankments by the Northeast and Yilan Coast National Scenic Area Administration. At dust and dawn, looking out from this trail, you’ll see that the ocean is bathed in a golden halo. You can also find that the Turtle Island seems to be worshipping the Sun at sunrise or that it wears a hat of clouds on cloudy days.

 

Near the service area, there are plenty of guest houses to choose from. If you are a sporty person, there is a paragliding base on a nearby hilltop. On clear days, you shall see paragliders riding air currents to explore the sky. This is a great way to enjoy an awe-inspiring panoramic birds-eye-view of coastal Waiao. Surfing and banana boating are also possible. There are surfing board shops that offer coaching services. Over the last few years, Waiao has been a popular place for those who want to do sport in the sky, air and ocean in one single vacation.
