Maoao Ancient Stone Houses
Looking towards the right from Fulian Elementary School, visitors would find a small fishing village settlement not far away, and it is exactly the Maoao Fishing Port. After enjoying water activities by the shore, visitors could follow the Northern Coastal Highway and travel towards the east to the Maoao Fishing Port. Before entering the Fishing Port, there are several ancient stone houses nearby; the stone materials exactly came from sandrocks by the seashore, the roof trusses came from the bamboos in the back mountains, and the roof thatched with grass straw. This “drawn from locally available materials” way of building the ancient houses is full of our ancestors’ wisdom! Today, these stone ancient houses are mostly deserted and slowly crumbling down, so hurry and come capture traces of history before they are completely gone!
Lion Head Mountain Hiking Trail
The“Lion Head Mountain Park”is situated on a 70-meter altitude Jinshan cape. Transformed from an early military coast guard restricted zone to the tourist destination today, the old barracks, bunker, fort and natural habitat was preserved. It is a forest walk with a good view and ocean on three sides. The Lion Head Mountain ringed walkway is cool with a gentle rise and trees to either side. It is fit for family outings, passing the adorable lucky trail (Maitreya figure) and walking further in for the beautiful “Couple Rock” story and see the “Candle Stick Rocks” shaped like candle holders. One can also visit the mystery bay of the north coast and appreciate Tofu Rock and sand rock remains on the marine beach. The best part about visiting Lion Head Mountain is the chance to see all three “Golden Coast Wonders” at once, the Candle Stick Rock, sulfuric fire fishing and moonlight on water.
