The Whale Cave (Chinese: 澎湖逍遙遊; pinyin: Pēnghú Xiāoyáoyóu) is a wave-cut platform in Xiaomen Village, Xiyu Township, Penghu County, Taiwan.

History[edit]

The wave is originally a basalt cliffed coast. After being continuously eroded by monsoon and seawater, it finally became an arch.[1]

Geology[edit]

The save is located on Xiaomen Island. From the side, the hollow part roughly has the shape of a whale.
