Shimen Windmill Park 石門風力發電站
Owned by Taipower the national power company, I like that the windmill park is open to outside visitors and have tourist-friendly facilities including car park and restrooms
Shimen Stone Arch 石門洞
Fuji Harbour 富基漁港We skipped Fuji Harbour 富基漁港 though as we were still very filled after lunch at Jinshan Old Street. Apparently you can buy fresh seafood from the seafood market and bring to the nearby restaurants who will cook it for you for a small fee. I thought it would be a pretty good experience, since we also have skipped the out-of-the-way Saikung seafood paradise in Hong Kong. You can refer to Saliha's blog for photos of her experience at Fuji Harbour.
Laomei Stone Ditches 老梅綠石槽Our driver had a hard time looking for this place. Laomei stone Ditches are wave-cut volcanic lava reefs and looks like this according to Google image search:

Shimen Wedding Plaza 石門婚紗廣場 is actually an outdoor area with man-made Mediterranean style sculptures. With the sea in the background, it is a beautiful place for wedding photography.
Argh, we should have worn something more appropriate! :P
Linshanbi 麟山鼻遊憩區Similar to Laomei Stone Ditches, Linshanbi 麟山鼻 features wave-cut volcanic lava reefs. So no moss covered stone during this hot weather too.
Hengshan Terrace Fields 橫山梯田As we were traveling towards Danshui, we made a quick pitstop at Hengshan Terrace Fields 橫山梯田 in the neighboring 三芝区Sanzhi District. Again, we were attracted by the photos in Google, showing how the water in the rice terraces reflects the blue skies, example:
I recall after our trip, I managed to find a shuttle bus service along the North Coast. Seems that it is out of service now, perhaps with too few tourists
Perhaps we chose the wrong season to travel the coastal strip during a super hot summer (in between two weeks of typhoons). While we enjoy ourselves thoroughly searching for each destination, I think once is enough :)
