Yeh Liu Geo Park, Xinbei

(4.3/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Stretching some 1,700 m (5,577 ft) into the ocean, Yeh Liu Geo Park 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.

  • Fascinating rock formations in various shapes such as pineapple, dragon's head, slipper, etc, or whatever you make of it! There's something about the sound of crashing waves all around you that sets y...  more »
  • 野柳地質公園位於台灣近基隆的北海岸。風景區以別具特色的海蝕崖及各種奇特石景聞名,當中以「女王頭」石最出名。能更親近、了解這裡的生態地質,欣賞豐富美麗的景觀,遊客一定會讚頌大自然之神奇,著實值得一去。  more »
  • 值得一去,入园有人数控制,因此不会很拥挤。但明显感觉到近年来污染的日趋严重,好鸟变少了,海边的绿色苔藓类植物越来越多。  more »

  • Went on a Saturday. Big mistake, too many tourist. If you have the luxury of time, maybe go on a weekday, might be better, or maybe if you had visited on a weekday, you can share your experience. The view is good. Lots of interesting things to take photo with. If you are adventurous enough, and able to walk, suggest that you walk further towards the end of the park towards to sea. I walked there from 10.30am or so in November, very hot. If the weather is cooling, should be quite a nice walk. You will reach the end point pavilion in about 20mins, very cooling and very few people there. Good spot to take photo here.
  • What a spectacular place to visit. They let you get up and touch many of the rocks. It's a great place for photography, especially in the late afternoon when the sun gets closer to the horizon.
  • Visited waay back in the spring a bit before closing & it was pretty cool! Long bus ride from Taipei, but worth it. It's in a fishing neighborhood, so the bay is sooo pretty when the boots are docked for the night. I would say that if ur a female traveling alone, I'd use a bit of caution in the evening. The long wait for the bus if u missed it can be nerve-wrecking, but worth it! Plus, u prob aren't the only one.
  • The rock formations are a spectacular sight to behold. Remember to come early and during good weather, as tourist will start gathering later of the day and during bad weather certain sections will be closed off for safety reasons.
  • The kind of tourist site that you need to visit at least once. Unique rock formation that is very photogenic. Beware if you visit during hot summer days. The park has no shade at all.
