Yehliu Geological Park is famous for its sea-eroded landscape, while most of the spots are very close to the sea. The park can be divided into three areas. The first area contains mushroom rock and ginger rock; the second area is similar to the first area, where the mushroom rock and the ginger rock are the main focuses, only they are fewer in numbers. You may see the Queen’s Head, Dragon’s Head Rock, and etc. The third area is the wave-cut platform located on the other side of Yehliu, which also includes the major ecology reserve of Yehliu Geopark in addition to the said rock landscapes.

The best known spot in Yehliu Geopark, is a mushroom rock named for resemblance to the profile of Queen Elizabeth I of England.

It is a nice tour for those who only have a few hours to spare, but wanted to get out of Taipei for a quick trip! The guide is friendly and professional, recommended.
We have enjoyed the guided tour to Yehliu Park. The guider was very kind and excellent in guiding the tour. Thank you for the good service.
We love the unique place .nice tour guide and driver highly recommended .thumbs up
Enjoyed the tour. Would recommend to my friends.
It was a nice, good tour I do give three stars, as it was too touristic for my taste - however The organization was good and I liked the way of Information sharing
This was a really interesting, and recommended tour however would be better on a full day. The guide was very informative and helpful and provided key details at both sites. The rock formations are fascinating and the scenic coast wonderful. Excellent value for money but could have spent much more time at Yehliu Park.
It was a short tour seeing a temple at a high spot in Keelung followed by Yehliu Park. The park is beautiful but we did not have much time to explore. Our guide did not speak English too well and it was a bit hard to understand for my American friend. Not worth just to see Keelung - might as well join another tour which lets you have more time at Yehliu Park.
Worth it, although the tour appeared short because it was a holiday and people flock the geopark.
