Queen's Head, Xinbei

3.8
#4 of 52 in Parks in Xinbei
Witness 4,000 years old Queen's Head, which got its name because it resembles Queen Elizabeth. Strong winds, seawater, and erosion formed this mushroom rock. The current name came into existence after the top of the rock formation fell off, causing it to look like the queen's profile. This natural wonder and tourist attraction is in danger of falling, as the "neck" portion of the rock gets smaller every year. You can purchase figures of this rock formation at a nearby souvenir shop. Add Queen's Head and other attractions to your Xinbei trip itinerary using our Xinbei trip itinerary maker.

    To go from Taipei, your bones are fine. Good to go. Place this stone in addition to feel nature's miracle.

    Go to Yehliu Geopark to see this amazing rock formation. It's just an hour east of Taipei and worth the trip.  more »

    It’s the iconic symbol of Yehliu. It’s interesting but it gets old pretty fast. Check out another interesting rock formation (a gorilla’s head) that is somehow not popular with visitors. In the summer, arrive early to avoid the insanely long queue and the scorching heat.

    There was a queue just to take a picture with the Queen's head. A tourist attraction. Not really worth the queue - the entire geopark is much nicer than the structure on its own.

    Great place for relaxation. It just takes 40 minutes drive from downtown Taipei to reach the place. When you see Queen Elizabeth's Head and you only say "Seeing is believing."

    Definitely a must see in Keelung! The hard sand rocks are beautiful. The famous "Queen's Head" is slowly wearing away with wind/weather, so better go see it while the head's still up! ;)

Where to stay in Xinbei

Far more accommodations lie in adjacent Taipei than in Xinbei. That said, if you're keen to stay in Xinbei, you won't have any problems finding a place to sleep. Banqiao district offers the largest collection of hotels, guesthouses, and hostels in the new city, particularly around Fuzhong station. A similar variety, but greater number, of accommodations can be found in Taipei's central district, with a vast array of hotels great and small, guesthouses, hostels, and boutiques available to the east of the Tamsui River.
