We drove out to the cliffs based on very positive reviews, but we came away a little disappointed. Although the views from the end of the route to the coast are okay, we have seen better elsewhere and from having high expectations, we came away a little underwhelmed. It gets very busy with tour buses but the road to the cliffs is very wide and it never felt crowded. There is a car park but this is not particularly large. However visits to the attraction do not take long. We only had to wait a short time for a spot to appear. There are also toilets. Less than a 10 minute walk to the cliffs.

Great views of the cliff but can only see it from a distance. You are restricted to the road with no path going down the cliffs. However, the views justify a stop. Parking is limited and you may have to wait for a spot. As most people are not staying for long, you have a fair chance to park with some patience.

Beautiful scenery. Absolutely worth the trip we took the train and it was easy to navigate. You can also hire a taxi to take you for a reasonable price.

The Suhua Highway runs 118 km (74 miles) from Suao to Hualien. It is one of the world's most spectacular highways. Officially, the road is Provincial Highway Number 9. The Qingshui Cliff is a marvellous sight, which is also a little frightening. The Highway is carved into the side of the cliff, high above the churning Pacific Ocean.It's a trip you will never forget. Get an experienced driver.

Taiwan's East Coast is mountainous and the land falls abruptly into the sea. Just getting from one place to another was challenging until in a masterwork of engineering for which Taiwan is well-known, the Su-hua Highway was carved into the face of the cliff. The trip is spectacular, just make sure that you have a reliable driver.

As part of our day trip itinerary with Klook, we stopped to view the cliffs and took photos. The cliffs were majestic and the place was windy. Sea was a bit rough.

We took this route as we had a helpful driver. It is well known that the East Coast of Taiwan is mountainous, but I had never gone on anything like this highway before. It was certainly worthwhile. The view was spectacular, looking out over the Pacific Ocean, with the road clinging to the side of the cliff. It was a bit hair-raising at times. This is one of those construction projects they do so well in Taiwan, making something out of nothing. It's certainly worth the trip.

My wife and I enjoyed a 6 night Wendy Wu private tour of Taiwan in January 2020 as part of an 18 day Asian trip to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Our tour took in Taipei, Taroko Gorge, Sun Moon Lake, Tainan and Kaohsiung.

After an overnight in Taipei, we commenced day one of our tour travelling to the famed Taroko Gorge. We travelled via the world’s fifth longest highway tunnel (12.9km) and the Su-hua Highway, Taiwan’s breathtaking east coast cliff highway which stretches from Su'ao Township to Hualien City. Without a doubt the Su-hua Highway is one of the most scenic drives in Asia literally hugging the cliffs of Taiwan’s east coast. Extreme care needs to be taken when driving this highway. We were very grateful to our tour driver/guide who negotiated the road with great skill, care and patience.

On the Su-hua Highway between Heren and Chongde we stopped at a parking area beside the Chongde Tunnel which led to an observation platform and here we were able to marvel at the absolute beauty of the Qingshui Cliff (aka Chinshui Cliff). A magnificent scene is created from this observation deck and a wonderful panorama can be enjoyed with the Cliff on our left and a 21 kilometre stretch of beach as our eyes move slowly to our right. The Cliff rises vertically from the Pacific Ocean, with an average height of over 800 metres with the tallest peak, Qingshui Mountain rising 2408 metres from the ocean floor.

The observation deck to witness the Qingshui Cliff is a very worthwhile fifteen minute stop on the drive from Taipei to Taroko Gorge. Not only were we able to “stretch our legs”, we also had the opportunity to admire one of the truly great spectacular seascapes. We were able to appreciate first hand why the site of the Qingshui Cliff was designated in 1953 by the Taiwan government as one of the island's "Eight Wonders."

One of the 8 wonders of Taiwan. You must come and see for yourself. Simply breathtaking. This is the only place you can see Pacific Ocean’s different tones of blue.

For whatever reason, we did not come here during my last September trip. Anyway, this is a must see spot to really the beauty of SuHua Highway. Easy to park and also equipped with restroom. Great spot to fully explore the beauty of East coast ocean views. Additionally, you can also see the trains in and out of the tunnel if you are lucky.
