Rock sculptures and treasures created by natureDetails
Due to the layers of sand and clay deposits, the shifting tectonic plates, and the years of erosion from the wind and surf, it has caused the coast of Xiaoyeliu to form spectacular and unique rock formations such as cuesta scarp, honeycomb rocks, turtle rocks, tofu rocks and mushroom rocks.
We recommend you to stroll from the Visitor Center to the beach path of Xiaoyeliu and admire the coastal flora such as tree heliotrope and sea hibiscus. Wander along the coconut palm path and enjoy the serenity of the forest, listen to the duet of the birdsong and murmuring waves.
