The sea is colored by river water that contented with heavy minerals resulting a bright (sea water) and a dark (River water) combination as the local named it Yinyang. A natural phenomenon that would enrich your experience.

Sited on the hills, you can watch the yellow waters of the river merging with the blue of the sea. The surrounding hills exude tranquillity, and the promise of scenic walks. But from the vantage point, it's just hills and the merging waters. Your mileage...More

If you have time, pay this place a visit. The contrast of the Yellow water from mountain and the Sea was very distinct. But be careful when taking photo as the road is very busy.

This is a nice place to take photos as the high contrast colours of the sea water makes it very picturesque. There is a specially built area for picture taking on the hill.

Ruifan District
With its air of historical heritage, Shuijinjiu
(ShueiNanDong, Jingguashi, Jiufen) used to be
prosperous and glamorous due to mining. Although its
magnificent semblance no longer exists, the peaceful
and beautiful atmosphere has persisted. With a wave to
the age of the gold rush, one can still see a glimpse
of its glorious past through the Golden Waterfall.
