An offshore islet closest to us: Heping Island Park to unveil a most beautiful sanctuary on May 1

 To promote environmental education tourism on Heping Island, from May 1 onwards, deep guided tours will be available. Alabao Bay, hailed as an ideal place for watching the Sunrise in the world, will receive up to 300 visitors daily based on tidal hours. Upon online reservation, visitors will be able to explore the bay deeply, as accompanied by certified geological-association guides. Such reservation already became available on April 1, at the Heping Park website.

The North Coast and Guanyinshan National Scenic Area Administration recommends one thing that visitors should do when they are in Heping Island Park - to look for the lovely, unique“10 guardian rocks!” It is believed that about 25 million years ago, Heping Island was surrounded by the ocean. Due to wind and wave erosions, interesting geological formations such as pedestal rocks, chessboard rocks, and wave-cut platforms took shape. This turned the island into a vast open-air museum of nature. Five of the rocks are situated in Alabao Bay - Gorilla Rock, Pharaoh Rock, Crocodile’s Tear, Black Kite Rock (black tile is the symbol of Keelung City), and the super beautiful Leopard Rock. Come to the North Coast to explore its seasonal scenery, too!

Special “observatory windows” are especially in place for visitors to easily take photos with Big Head Rock, Sphinx Rock, Seal Rock, Mudskipper Rock, and Gorilla Rock. Finally, all necessary measures have been implemented to fight against COVID-19 and visitors can feel safe, assured and happy when immersing in the nature of Heping Island.
