You can walk to the Elephant Trunk Rock along the sandstone coast next to the Shan-Ao Fish Port, where the beauty of peculiar stones and rocks such as pedestal rocks and honeycomb rocks can be seen all over the coast along the way, while the marine arch created over a long period of time resembles a long elephant trunk reaching into the water, forming the unique gigantic beast landscape.
