Yuanbei (Round Shell) Island is a small island shaped like a seashell. The northern coast of the island is rimmed with columnar basalt formations; and a formation near its northern tip, made up of a basalt column section and a hole eroded by the sea, is known as the "Brush Pen and Inkstone." Fan-shaped rows of basalt columns on the eastern side of the island resemble pleated skirts. The water between Yuanbei and Baisha Islet constitutes a rich ocean ecology filled with precious areas of coral.
