Dozens of Subaru car club members had to be rescued off a beach in Taiwan by Jeeps after they drove onto the sand and got trapped.

Nearly 50 Subarus ended up strewn across the picturesque Mystery Beach in Nan-ao Township in the island’s eastern county of Yilan.

According to members of the car club, they had arranged the road trip to the beach in order to see its centuries-old sea cave - and to talk about their beloved Subarus.

But they underestimated the black sand and the rising tide, which trapped every single one of their cars.

Rescuers driving Jeep Wranglers were sent to help by the Nan-ao Township Office.

Footage shows them spending the day winching the stranded Subarus off the beach and away from the approaching waves.

"A lot of these young people deliberately strayed off a fixed path and drove into the sea to test their cars, some of which had four-wheel drive," a witness said.

Fortunately, none of the Subarus were damaged as a result of the embarrassing day out.

The township office revealed that Mystery Beach attracts large numbers of visitors due to its proximity to the nearby train station, which is just 8 kilometres (4.97 miles) away.

The beach is part of the Guanyin Coast Natural Reserve.
