If you love natural wonders, you must definitely not miss this place if you want to visit Taiwan. Known as Yehliu Geopark or Yehliu Promontory by geologist, it is situated in the northern hemisphere of Wanli, New Taipei, Taiwan. It’s a two hours ride from Taipei City.
It was quite a long way for us since we’re coming from Zhunan. It took us more than 3 hours of ride. Train is the most accessible way to reach Keelung, which is the last station in the north. From Keelung, we ride at the bus 790 going to Yehliu. The bus waiting area is just in front of the Family Mart, just a few blocks away from the train station. Prepare NT$30 for the bus fare.
If you want to enjoy the most of your time here, I suggest you must travel as early as possible. Don’t visit here during rainy or winter season. For me, summer is the best time to go here, so you can capture and enjoy a clear blue sky and ocean.
The entrance fee is just NT$80 for adults. There is also dolphin show if you want an extra entertainment but I don’t know how much is the ticket.

The Yehliu Coast side
On the northern side of the Yehliu cape, you can go trekking up the mountain of the northern part. You can get a good view of the entire Yehliu Geopark up there. It’s a long way of stairs up to the top but it’s worth the sweat and energy.
