The“Lion Head Mountain Park”is situated on a 70-meter altitude Jinshan cape. Transformed from an early military coast guard restricted zone to the tourist destination today, the old barracks, bunker, fort and natural habitat was preserved. It is a forest walk with a good view and ocean on three sides. The Lion Head Mountain ringed walkway is cool with a gentle rise and trees to either side. It is fit for family outings, passing the adorable lucky trail (Maitreya figure) and walking further in for the beautiful “Couple Rock” story and see the “Candle Stick Rocks” shaped like candle holders. One can also visit the mystery bay of the north coast and appreciate Tofu Rock and sand rock remains on the marine beach. The best part about visiting Lion Head Mountain is the chance to see all three “Golden Coast Wonders” at once, the Candle Stick Rock, sulfuric fire fishing and moonlight on water.

The “Maitreya” called Alfred at the entrance smiles adoringly. Don’t forget a photo together for souvenir.

The best angle to photograph the “Candle Stick Rock” is from this viewing platform located near the end of Lion Head Mountain Park. Photographing through this steel frame shows the aquafact pillars as if husband and wife holding hands and looking into each other eye to eye. It is also suitable for couple pictures.
