Today, marine life in the coast has grown rapidly which it brings new business trend for marine tour and the snorkeling industry. Marine Ecological Community is what brings Fushan together and create a long lasting ocean resource.

xiaoyeliu

Located at the 162-kilometer mark near the southern end of the East Coast National Scenic Area, Xiaoyeliu (Little Yeliu) offers a rich variety of fascinating rock formations similar to those found at Yeliu on Taiwan's North Shore. Unlike the rest of the Philippine Plate that determines the geology of this area, the rock of Xiaoyeliu is sandstone. This prompts geologists to believe that it originated somewhere else. You should first study the detailed explanations of the geological displays in the Visitor Center before going to the seashore and examining the tofu rock, honeycomb rock, fungus rock, and other strange ormations there. On clear days, you can easily see Green Island from the shore at Xiaoyeliu.
