Here is a continuation of the cover insert description for the
Laomei Algal Reef.
Laomei Algal Reef is one of the more popular scenic tourist attractions
in northern Taiwan. Located 30 minutes east of Danshui on the coastal
highway #2 and a few minutes walk from Fuguei Cape.
This reef is a geographic oddity because of the way that the ocean
waves have cut into the volcanic rock forming deep troughs and grooves.
The best time to visit these unusual reef formulations is April or May when
the brilliance of the green algae is at its peak. During the summer months
when the temperatures are higher, the algae blooms wither and die, but
the natural beauty of this area is still worth a trip, no matter what season
