From here, you can take the 101 bus that goes to Heping Island. The island is the gateway to the Keelung harbor. At the Heping Island Park, you can see how the coastline has evolved over time. Along the shore, you can see how the rocks have been eroded into various unique shapes by the wind and sea.
