The area
Neighborhood: Jingshan / Wanli District
The North Coast of Taiwan (Wanli District/ Jinshan District area) is filled with breathtakingly extraordinary rock formations, the most widely known of which is the various unique geological landscapes in Yehliu Geopark. The famous Queen’s Head, Fairy Shoe, etc., are absolute works of beauty by nature’s uncanny craftsmanship. One must also taste the authentic seafood cuisine when visiting the North Coast. Delicious dishes cooked with fresh catches are the favorite of gourmets. If you visit in fall, don’t miss the great taste of Wanli crabs. Jinbaoli Old Street is as busy as it was a hundred years ago. Here you can taste the local cuisine specials of sweet potatoes, jumping taros, etc. The area of Jinshan and Wanli is also a known hot spring resort, where you can experience hot spring baths and remove your body of fatigue and stress. The Juming Museum situated in Jinshan District gathers all of Master Ju Ming's life work in the art park. Located beside the mountains and neighboring seas, the important creations from varying periods by the sculpting master are displayed in accordance with different terrains and landscapes.

Famous rock formation deserves a photo
Mar 2021
The Yehliu Geo Park has a number of attractive rock formations, but the best-known is the Queen's Head. The formation looks like a queen, perhaps Cleopatra, Queen of ancient Egypt. I saw the Queen's Head for the first time many years ago, it hasn't changed. It is said that the Queen's fragile neck is eroding and the head may fall off, but that is likely to be far into the future. In the meantime, get a photo while you can.

Interesting Rock formation
Nov 2019
This is an iconic rock formation and probably the most famous one in Yehliu Geopark. Went on a day trip with Klook. The original natural queen's head was being slowly eroded by the force of nature, so they even built a replica further inland.

Visiting Queen's Head was a very good experience. The rock formations at the Geo Park area were amazing! There is a replica of the Queen's Head on the way to the actual Queen's Head. Don't be mistaken. It was a 3D replica that is ready to replace the original when it not longer exists. Follow the signs to Queen's Head; you will see a que. There are security personnel you can ask to take a photo of you! They are very friendly.

Probably the most recognizable/popular rock formation in Yehliu
Jan 2020
This rock formation is believed to be 4,000 years old. People line up to have their picture taken with it. While there are other rock formations, the Queen's head is the "rockstar" among them (pun intended). But because it is already showing signs of erosion, it would seem that the shape will no longer be the same in years to come that is why a replica of it was made and placed in another area of the park.

A Regal Rock at Yehilu
Nov 2019
During our visit to the geo-park we had seen what we mistakenly thought was Queen's Head. When we saw this rock there was no doubt at all, because of the shape, and the extra amount of people. There are also signs pointing the way to this feature.

A boardwalk trail leads to the rock. For an extra fee, one can join a line to have your picture taken with the rock. It is also possible to go around the other side, and see it from another angle.

And, did I mention there is an earth-cache here?

This is definitely one of the "must see" features of this marvelous park, though not the only one.

The stone monument is so amazing. Glad to have seen it because our tour guide said it could fall in the next five years

Beautiful but crowded and, at times, windy.

Beautiful but crowded and, at times, windy.

The Geopark is excellent but trying to queue for a photo of the Queen's Head can be slow. There are many other great photos about the area.

The park is open and windy, so take a raincoat and water.

Unique Mother Nature gift

The queen's head rock is actually just one of the many rocks in Yeh Liu Geopark. It is the most famous one and require visitors to line up for taking picture. The line is always full. Actually one can take photo from behind too, but need the right angle to capture so that it look like a Queen's head.

It's the most bizarre stone
Oct 2019 • Couples
As part of our cruise ship tour we came to the park. Lovely visit. Busy day as a national holiday in Taiwan.
Shaded area on walk up but near the queen it's very open so take lots of water.
