Vase Rock is the most famous tourist attraction on Liuqiu. It was formed by the rising of the coastal coral reefs. The coral formation looks like a vase because its lower part becomes thinner as a result of being eroded by the sea for a long period of time.
As evidenced by the newly-formed coral reefs around Vase Rock, Liuqiu is still under the influence of upward movement of the Earth’s crust.
Located near the main port Baisha Port, Vase Rock is often the first destination for visitors. It is the most famous landmark and seen as a guardian of Liuqiu.
