Beauty Cave 美人洞風景區
Limestone walls, eroded cliffs, collapsed coral cliffs, sea terraces and sea caves are the main attractions of the Beauty Cave. Amongst the limestone one can also find fossilized spiral shells and stick-like fossilized corals.

Beauty Cave, one of the scenic spots, was built in 1075. According to legend, in Ming Dynasty a beautiful and charming lady with long hair traveled with her father who was an official by boat on the sea. During the journey, the boat was overturned by strong winds and they lost each other. The lady floated onto the shore of Liuqiu. She survived on wild fruits and spring water and spent all her life on the island. Afterwards, the cave which the lady lived in is called Beauty Cave.
