Impressions of Beauty
east coast
The East Coast is surrounded by beautiful coastline and stunning mountains. Situated right in between the ocean and continental plates, movement of the two plates created the mountains, sliced the hills into rivers, and eroded rocks into beautiful sculptures. Geological activity gave Taitung special sights and sounds. The mountains in the west of Taitung are majestic and mystical. Rivers run through them and intertwine into spectacular natural beauty. Between the mountains and the ocean, valleys and plains weave the beauty of nature's creations.
The East Coast is mainly made up of pebble beaches, sandy beaches, rock cliffs, and coral reefs. Sanxiantai and Xiaoyeliu are the most unique and majestic of all. The whole area is adorned by sea eroded terraces, caves, and trenches. The caves and trenches are the best proof of past geological activity.
