Chuanfan Rd., Hengchun Township, Pingtung County 946, Taiwan (R.O.C.)
Besides Yehliu in northern Taiwan, Kenting is also a geological curiosity. Chuanfanshi means “sail stone”, as it looks like a sail of a boat protruding out on the sea from a distance. This rock was broken from the coral shore. It is hard enough to withstand the erosion that flattened the shoreline behind the stone. The coral shoreline here lies in a bay between two peninsulas in Kenting. So it attracts lots of marine life here. That makes this place a perfect location for snorkelling and scuba diving.
Put on your sandals and have a shoreline walk with us and name the rock by your imagination. Some say it looks like U.S. President Nixon’s head when you walk close to the rock!
