2013 Fulong Sand Sculpture Art Festival

There is a three-kilometer stretch of golden-sand beach between Yanliao and Fulong on the northeast coast. The superior quality of the sand, and the fact that it sticks together, makes it easy to sculpt when wet – leading to its naming as one of the best beaches for sand sculpting in Taiwan by the World Sand Sculpting Association. This popular festival has been held every year in early summer since 2008, attracting top sand artists from around the world.

Dates: May 4 ~ June 30 (tentative)

Location: Fulong Beach, Gongliao District, New Taipei City (新北市貢寮區福隆海水浴場)
