Stretching some 1,700 m (5,577 ft) into the ocean, YehLiu Geopark serves as a natural exhibition area for some of the strangest tent rock formations in the world. Dotted with hoodoo stones, the promontory offers fantastic views of the distinctive geological formations created in Miocene, which pushed the Dalian Mountains out of the sea. Marvel at the rocky Queen’s Head, the rock resembling a profile of Elizabeth II Queen of England, then check out Sea Candles, Fairy’s Shoe, or Ginger Rock. You can have fun concocting your own name for some of the shapes while walking through a forest of tall mushroom-shaped rocks. This bizarre Martian-like landscape can be reached by bus 90 minutes from West Taipei station.

Very Interesting place. Rock formations have different shapes that represents people’s face, animals, vegetables, etc. Weather in late October was excellent. Not too hot and cooling. Would recommend this place to stopover and visit.
A must visit place if you're in Taiwan. As nature lover's, you definitely will enjoy and fall in love with this place. It's rich with various geographical structure. The sea and sky are pretty with different shades of colour. You can't stop taking pictures here as everywhere is picturesque 😍 Please prepare an umbrella or rain coat too. The weather here is unpredictable 😂 Make sure to drop by at the nearest seafood restaurant as they serve the best and fresh seafood in town 😉
