The Spring Break organizers are continuing their collaboration with Sunset Beach Bar and the Kaohsiung Tourism Bureau to make Cijin Island’s gigantic free beach party even bigger. This time the festival will go two days, feature over 20 performers and add a second sound setup!
Music and activities start just after noon, including sporting events during daytime hours. There’s a full lineup of DJs and entertainers on stage until at least 10pm. Party goers won’t wanna miss the Bikini Dance Contest with a cash prize on stage a little after 8pm.
Getting to Cijin is pretty easy with Kaohsiung’s excellent public transport system. But many party goers, male and female alike, will don bikinis and ride public shared bikes directly to the Cijin Ferry Terminal as part of the Bikini Bike Ride event.
The sight of 100 or so bikini wearing cyclists is pretty sure to make an impression on people along the planned route from Brickyard to the ferry. Participants will enjoy some free drinks courtesy of Superbock when they arrive at the Free the Beach Venue a bit after 3pm.
For people who wanna skip the bike ride, an MRT ride to Xiziwan Station and a short walk to the Cijin ferry terminal is not too difficult. NSYSU students just have to walk 5 minutes from their campus to the ferry. Organizers are strongly urging people to travel to Cijin Island very early to avoid overloading the ferries that leave every 15 minutes or so and take about 7 minutes from the terminal to the island.
Free the Beach is totally Free, but attendees are asked to support the effort of the organizers and sponsors by purchasing drinks and food from the bar and official vendors.
