Rockfall Warning for the Sea Caves on the West Coast of Shoushan National Nature Park Headquarters Reminds the Public to Keep Clear of the Area

The recent heavy rains in Shoushan have consequently brought new hazards. There have been rocks falling from above the sea caves, making the unpredictable giant rock formation area even more dangerous. The National Nature Park Headquarters requests the public to please admire the view from a distance and keep clear of the area.

The west coast of Shoushan offers a landscape of unique uplifted coral reef formations and coastal views, including the scenic sea caves that often appear in videos and online posts. However, the beautiful scenery hides an environmental hazard.

Research over the years has concluded that the west coast of Shoushan is a relatively young geological area. Most of the rocks scattered along the coast are formed by avalanche sediments and limestone avalanche debris, which then bonded together, making the terrain relatively fragile. Therefore, topographic features such as steep cliffs, cave-ins, and fissures are evident in the area.

The National Nature Park Headquarters reminds visitors to check for dangers on-site when stopping in the area to admire the view. In addition, during the pandemic prevention period, visitors must wear masks at all times, should not gather in groups, and maintain social distance.
