One of the better beaches in the area and not as windy as some other ones that I visited. This beach doesn't have and vendors and is less crowded, however you can't swim here like many other places. It's easy to get to if you're in kenting, and requires no vehicle or excessive walking.

This beach is nothing special. They call it a white sand but it's obviously called this for some other reason. Perhaps it was lost in translation?

A perfect swimming beach in every way, and worth a quick stop to see its beauty, but closed to swimming because of selfish people taking away sand and littering. Sad.

It feels isolated and private. A great place for couples to spend the day watching the wild surf crash in.

in Thailand or Fillipines this would not be considered a beach - however i guess no one comes here for the beach. I also didn't find anny other reason to come here.

White Sand Bay shocked me because of an endless sea and beach, and I was most impressed by water sports in Kenting where a wonderful place in Taiwan is. I think the banana boating and the jet ski are my favorite of all water sports I played, even if I can’t swim. I had fell into the sea a few... More

This summer vacation. I went to Kenting with my family. I saw many people there wearing Bikini and doing some water activities under the big sun. I thought they were not afraid of the heat. They still had fun and laughed each other. When I entered the Bed and Breakfast, I was amazed then. How beautiful the ocean is! I... More

White Sand Bay at Kenting is a must-visit especially for beach/water sports lovers, for they have a variety of water sports for you to participate in. There is no entrance fee, and the beach is very clean and reminded me of Bondi Beach in Sydney.

There is no entrance fees. No wonder there were so many reviewers? I got there on a bad day. It was very wet after rain and rubbish dumped everywhere. I can only imagine that it would be a nice experience on a clear day

Nice beach, no change to access it. But lovely to see. Good for a 10-15 minutes stop, on the way. Some shop around, and people taking pictures

Thank Serfun
