Hualien’s Shitiping Scenic Area presents a spectacular scene of coastal erosion, complete with wave-cut platforms, sea trenches, coral reefs, and potholes.
Day by day, through countless eons, the hard rocks have been eaten away, creating today’s magnificently craggy coastline. Seen from Shitiping’s famous cuesta, the fissures in the rocks seem to radiate out into the Pacific, as if in endless dialogue with the sea.
