Discription of surf spot: Kinmen, Taiwan

Kinmen's a small island off the coast of China but is part of Taiwan. It's a beautiful island with nice beaches. Some of the beaches can kind of dirty with garbage but the best and cleanest beach is at Cihou (good luck with the pronounciation). Once you get here it's kinda hard to find the beach and few people speak English. The best bet is to rent a scooter and go on a quest. There are beaches that don't have any waves and then some that do. Cihou is pretty close to the main city, Jincheng and if you see a sign to Hohou or Ouchu they're also close to Cihou. The beach ocean is empty as few people can swim here and there are only 3 surfboards on the island so if you don't have your own board don't expect to surf. The waves are pretty fickle so, basically don't come here to surf but bring your board incase there is surf.
