The Northeast Coast is bounded by the sea on one side and mountains on the other; it is interspersed with bays and capes characterized by the Nanya rock formations and precipitous cliffs, expansive sea-eroded landscapes, fine golden-sand beaches, and an abundance of oceanic ecology.

The most famous is the Queen’s Head, and other unusual formations that are named: the Fairy’s Shoe, the Mushroom Rocks, the Tofu Rocks, the Elephant Rocks, etc.
