Eluanbi Park is famed for its lighthouse. Due to a lack of recreation facilities, in addition to paying respects to a bronze statue of Chiang Kai-Shek, admiring the lighthouse exterior, and taking photographs, there's no other amusement spots.  The tourist bureau then built a park on the opposite side of the bronze statue, right by the coral reefs. It formally opened on December 25th, in Minguo Year 71. This park continues to undergo rennovations, in order to make it even more beautiful. Its area covers a total of 59 hectares, and the topography is coral reef limestone. The reason for its formation is due to the strong sunlight and clear seawaters, both of which are suitable for the growth of coral reefs. It ascends due to crustal upheaval, and recieve erosion from the sea waves, rain, and winds, before becoming the giant reefs, rock formations, and odd cave landscapes they currently are today. Trails criss-cross within the park, just like a maze. There's the Haohan Rock, Canghai Pavilion, Youyi Village, Deep Valley, and other points . Everywhere you go is fascinating. At the park's northern point, you can see the blue skies and seas, along with the greenery, white sands, bony reefs, and mesa peaks as well. In addition, there's also towering sisal plants, with the vast ocean scenery dispersed inbetween them. The park contains around 240 species of plants. Amongst the coral reefs, you can find black ebony, hibiscus, sea mangoes, Taiwan persimmons, screw pine, and other various species of tropical coastline trees. The rocky cliffs are teeming with creeping shrubs and bushes; they are mostly vine-based, and include dye figs, taro vines, Hemsley's Rockvine, and others. The variety of animals are also impressive, and you may see beautiful yellow swallowtail butterflies and black-spotted white butterflies fluttering in the wind, with Styan's bulbul and magpies being some of the more commonly seen bird species. Every September (around Bailu on the lunar calendar), large flocks of brown shrikes from mainland China and Siberia will pass through. The entire park is an excellent viewing location. Even more, prehistoric ruins dating back 5000 years have been discovered at the park, and are considered to be part of late Paleolithic Era culture and civilization. Pottery, as well as production of stone tools and forging were not yet part of their way of living, with their lifestyle based mainly on hunting and gathering instead. At Taitung's Baxian Cave, a site with pre-pottery culture was discovered for the second time. Archaeologists systematically analyze the site and schedule for on-site displays so that the public can better understand the hardships of nature, as well as the closely linked relationship between Taiwan and China's cultures. Eluanbi Lighthouse is 24.1 meters in height, and is equipped with four large rotating lights. The lights emit a luminosity of 1.8 million candelas. Every thirty seconds signals one cycle, and it can be seen from a distance of 20 nautical miles away. It's the Taiwan area's brightest lighthouse and boasts the title of "East Asia's Light", and is currently designated as a preservation area within Kenting National Park.
