One of the more "worth-it" attractions to visit in hualien. While it is not spectacular, it is beautiful and quiet. You can choose to rent a bike and cycle around the lake, or hire a paddle boat for an hour to enjoy the scenery :)

Lake is not very large. You have on one side hill view. You can do water biking or have speed boat tour around the lake. There are some restaurants. Nice to be here but not a top attraction.

We visited Liyu Lake early in the morning, largely before other visitors arrived. However, we know that if a lake has a large herd of swan pedalos - then it's not for us! The surrounding scenery was okay but not remarkable.

A great place for jogging, running or trekking, canoe or simply enjoying the view. Plenty of activities to do

This is a nice little lake - you can peddle a swan boat or bike around the lake. But I think the best is to try the kayak - very relaxing and not too difficult. Make sure you pick the right vendor who can provide...More

Response from Danielvyjel | Reviewed this property |
Generally in China is not allowed to swim on most natural places because it's believed not to be safe. Most of people can't swim and Taiwan is not an exception. So that's probably the reason.
