Liyu Lake is easily accessible by bus from Hualien and it has hiking paths and paddle boats for a nice afternoon of fun. The south side of the lake also has many restaurants, often selling shrimp cakes and papaya milk tea.

One of the more "worth-it" attractions to visit in hualien. While it is not spectacular, it is beautiful and quiet. You can choose to rent a bike and cycle around the lake, or hire a paddle boat for an hour to enjoy the scenery :)

There's bike and boat hire, or you can just walk around the lake and into the surrounding mountain forest. The bird life is amazing and there are lots of butterflies and spiders (and snakes and wasps, as the signs remind you). When you're done with...More

Generally in China is not allowed to swim on most natural places because it's believed not to be safe. Most of people can't swim and Taiwan is not an exception. So that's probably the reason.
