Puppy Bay （中文版：小狗灣） is a secluded cove in Pingtung, Hengchun Township. It's only a 5 minute walk to the main beach area, which is a popular place for snorkeling and camping. There is another "secret" beach which is hidden behind coral rocks on the right side of the main beach. There are many fish and other wildlife worth seeing here, particularly in the deeper water, but the coral in this area is not very healthy. Here you can see the direct and very real effects from climate change and a warming ocean.
