Yehliu Geopark, a headland with exotic rocks / 野柳地質公園 - 奇岩岬角

Some say, the name Yehliu originated from the transliteration of an aboriginal place.

Some others say, the name is actually the abbreviation of Punto Diablos without the consonants "d" and "b."
也有一說,是西班牙文魔鬼岬Punto Diablos,去掉子音「d」和「b」的縮寫。 5296a4bf3ede5c34c7a6835319f14e18

Yehliu topped the voting list of top 10 landscapes in Taiwan conducted by Taiwanese government in 2015.

Keep in mind that Yehliu is a headland, which means sea waves can come crashing onto the shore at any time. Don't get too close to the coastline.

Pay attention to safety while visiting. Don't cross the warning sign and do listen to direction given by the on-site staff.
參觀時注意安全,不要越警示牌,也要聽從現場工作人員指揮。 b4420dd247af785a3c7ad8b48a4f43de
