The place to be this month: Kenting’s surf beaches

Taiwan's southern national park offers respite from the summer heat

Surfed Indonesia? And India? Even tried Hong Kong? Seek out more waves in Kenting, a national park on Taiwan’s southern tip known for its cycling and hiking.

Surfing conditions here are consistently good in summer, making August a great time to head to Jialeshui beach, where boards and hostels are available.

The relatively uncrowded waters also make it a great place to learn the sport.
