The “Nanya Rocks” have a very special stratum structure. Weathered by the northeastern monsoon and gigantic sea waves over the years, they became unique landscapes on “Provincial Highway 2”. In particular, their color-painting-like patterns make them a local landmark. As most rocks in the area are shale and the hardness of each stratum varies, the degree and speed of weathering differ, thus forming their unique appearances featuring bumps and hollows at different levels.

The “Nanya Rocks” are very special landscapes looking like bamboo shoots afar and an ice-cream nearby. Visitors are recommended to appreciate their uniqueness along the geological trial.
