Sail Rock, Hengchun Township, Pingtung County, Taiwán 

From Sheding Park, along the newly opened road, about 4 km south. At the front of the coral reefs on the coast, a giant rock can be seen standing in the middle of the sea. It looks like a sailing ship that is about to start. It is named after the former United States President Richard Nixon. The head is laughable.

The stern is about 18 meters high. It is an old coral reef that has been rolled over from the top of the nearby platform to the sea. Because it is harder than the nearby uplifted coral reefs, it can stand in the sea for a long time and can be seen from above the platform. Huge coral reefs are proof.

The Chuanfan Rock has been planned as a national guesthouse, a parking lot, and field recreation sites. The nearby Banana Bay has been a whaling base and a whale processing plant. There are no existing facilities.

It can be seen that due to the endless greed of human beings, whales are almost extinct in southern Taiwan, and the wonder of spouting water can no longer be seen occasionally.
