Along Taiwan's north coast is a cape known as Yehliu. It was thrust up above sea level when the nearby volcanic Datun Mountain was forming. At the point, you can see an almost perfect example of a small, uplifted wave-cut terrace (the flat area next to the green). The material is sandstone so, once exposed, it is easily shaped by waves and currents.
