Yehliu is a cape of about 1,700 meters long formed by Datun Mountain reaching into the sea. When overlooked from above, the place is like a giant turtle submerging into the sea. Thus, it is also called “Yehliu Turtle.”
Yehliu Geo-park features all sorts of strange-looking rocks. It is part of Datun Mountain that stretches out to the sea. Weathering, marine erosion, and crustal movement together created the world-renowned scenery of mushroom rocks, sea caves, tofu rocks, candle rocks, and giant kettles.
The place is divided into three sections. The first section has rocks like Queen’s Head, Fairy’s Shoe, and Candle. The second section has rocks like Bean Curd and Dragon Head. The third section has sea-eroded caves, seal-shaped rocks, etc. The place is suitable for geological study and field research.
Yehliu also boasts an ecology reserve and the country’s first marine park. Taking a short walk beyond the Geopark will bring you to the top of a cliff offering an outstanding 360-degree view of the North Coast and the Pacific Ocean.
