Yehliu (野柳) is a cape on the north coast of Taiwan in the town of Wanli between Taipei and Keelung.

The cape, known by geologists as the Yehliu Promontory, forms part of the Taliao Miocene Formation. It stretches approximately 1,700 meters into the ocean and was formed as geological forces pushed Datun Mountain (大屯山) out of the sea. (source:

On a hot sunny day, I went to Yehliu Geopark.  It was extremely hot that umbrella and sun block didn’t help much.

This is the beach and the rock formation.

The picture below is mushroom rock.  We could use our imagination what these rocks look like.

This rock looks like a wig on head mannequine at beauty salon.

The most famous one is Queen’s Head rock below.

I couldn’t get better picture of Queen’s Head Rocks, as those people didn’t move even an inch though I had waited for a while.  So this is what I got.
