If you like sunshine, greenery and water, you will definitely love the mangrove trails at the Shuangchun Seaside Recreation Area, where you can experience fun and tranquility at the same time. It is a great option for outdoor school trips, family trips or just going alone and having a quiet conversation with yourself.
Director-General Kuo Chen-Hui of the Tourism Bureau pointed out that there are two north-south trails in the mangrove forest on the west side of the park, which have been affected by seawater and salt erosion, strong winds and sunlight for years and many of them are old and damaged. In recent years, the Tourism Bureau of Tainan City Government has been investing resources in the renovation of the boardwalk in both directions. In 2018, the renovation of the boardwalk in the north direction was completed and in 2020, the extension of the boardwalk in the south direction, which had been closed for 10 years, was rebuilt and in 2022, the renovation of the whole section of the boardwalk was completed. The renovated boardwalk trail is 456 meters long and 3 meters wide, with a gentle and comfortable route. The morning sunlight penetrates the green tunnel through the gaps in the foliage, making it a relaxing walk. At low tide, you can also get close to the tide crabs, mudskippers and the mangrove root system, which is very suitable for a family experience. Recently, in the southern mangrove waters, the park and professional organizations have been planning to promote SUP and kayaking activities to achieve the concept of educating for water safety and protecting the security woodland and mangrove ecological conservation.
