Kending National Park (chinese: ¾Á¤B°ê®a¤½¶é)
Kenting National Park is one of Taiwan's six national parks. It was the first national park and was officially opened in 1984. The Park is located at the southern tip of Taiwan in the area called the Hengchuen Peninsula. The Park now contains about 20,000 hectares of land and approximately 16,000 hectares of ocean along the three coasts. The park is well known for its uplifted coral reefs, oceanic natural resources, natural monsoon forests, and coastal tropical rainforest.
"Cat's Nose (chinese: ¿ß»óÀY¤½¶é)"
Cat's Nose (Maobitou), which gets its name from the shape of its coral reef coastline. It looks like a cat crouching and ready to pounce on a mouse. Maobitou is the dividing point between the Taiwan Straits and the Bashi Channel. It and Eluanbi are the two most southerly points of Taiwan. Maopitou presents the typically eroded topography of a coral reef coast.
"South Bay (chinese: «nÆW)"
Nanwan, or South Bay, is also called Lanwan, or Blue Bay, so called for its deep blue waters. In addition to the well known beach, there is also a little fishing village on the bay.
"Kenting Ranch (chinese: ¾Á¤Bªª³õ)"
This area was originally a settlement of the early Chinese pioneers,
but because of its dry, windy climate it was unsuited to crop raising. Thus, it was turned into a ranch in 1904. Since 1958 it has been administered by the Taiwan Provincial Government's Hengchuen Livestock Experimental Station, which experiments with sheep and cattle breeding, livestock medicine, and the propagation of forage grasses.
"Sail Rock (chinese: ²î¦|¥Û)"
From a distance it resembles a sailing ship just under way and so gets its name -- Sail Rock. Up close it suggests to some a profile of former U.S. President Richard Nixon. The rock is about 18 meters high. It is actually a piece of older
coral that long ago rolled off the nearby tableland down to the sea. Because its stone is harder than that of the surrounding newer coral, it has stood this way upright in the sea for thousands of years.
"Eluanbi Park (chinese: ÃZÆq»ó¤½¶é)"
Eluanbi, famous for its lighthouse, was previously lacking in suitable tourist facilities. Because of this, visitors arriving at this spot could admire the bronze statue of Chiang Kai-Shek, appreciate the exterior of the lighthouse and take souvenir photographs, but there were no other tourist sites. Therefore, the Kenting National Park authorities constructed a new park from the natural coral reef opposite from the bronze statue, formally opened on December 25, 1982.
"Wind Blown Sand (chinese: ·§j¬â)"
Fengchueisha, or Windblown Sand, is about seven kilometers north of Eluanbi. The neighboring areas are all coral rock. Recently, however, the opening of the Chia-O Highwayand the planting of Casuarina by the Forestry Department have impeded the flow of sand, and the tracks are gradually becoming overgrown with creeping plants. The barren, Gobi-like effect of the past is no longer to be seen.
