Lidos used to be under military strict control which prohibit people from approaching the coastline because of the coastal defense. After that, since lidos were one specific option for the general public to work out, swim, compete and play, so as to improve the national healthy, few lidos were opened by the local governments and members of congress in 1950s. In 1960s, the regulations of lido management be issued while lidos blew up gradually as a popular culture. Meanwhile, in order to integrate with tourism policies and even to settle up scenic recreation area to drive local economic development, many townships applied for "Public Businesses Fulfilled" to run lidos, particularly in a popular form of the entertainment. From the restricted area by military ban, the sport venue for people to build up the strong constitution and the tourist attraction for recreation, lidos went through different ages with various social climate as a complex sense incorporating both of spatiality and time. There were the unique scene in paddling the seashore as lidos were in a tug-of-war between the blocking policy and the opposite of approach to promote swimming and water activities during 1940s to 1960s.
