The sand here is very soft, and the water depth only gradually increases as you move away from shore.  Even though it's mostly shallow, some deep holes may exist, so caution is still advised while playing in the water with children or poor swimmers. 


This part of Tainan has a vibrant mariculture industry, and many floating oyster habitats can be seen offshore.  These bamboo habitats tend to be more concentrated around the south side of the beach, with the north end remaining free and clear for swimming.
