Taiwan is located north of the Philippines and southwest of Japan. Taiwan is a sub tropical island straddling the Tropic of Cancer with a high mountain range running from the north of island to the southern tip. Being sub-tropical, whilst the North of island can be cold and wet in winter the Southern and Eastern coast enjoy sunshine with clean waters and fresh air.
With yellow sandy beaches in the south, palm tress and dramatic mountain backdrops Taiwan can be considered to have an outer Island Hawaiian feeling. The East coast with mountains meeting the ocean offers black sand and boulder type breaks, again warm clear water and unpolluted air.
