And there is a stone tablet engraved with some Chinese words on it. Sunlight Rock is the best beauty spot of Gulangyu Islet, including the Sunlight Rock and the Piano Park two parts. A diameter of more than forty meters of rock on the summit of Sunlight Rock is the symbol of Xiamen.

Stacked strange rocks, natural caves, lapping waves, and verdant trees and flowers, all of these were presenting a tropical romance atmosphere. There are many wonderful types of scenery, as well as lots of stone inscriptions from ancient scholars.

Among the vast sea of clouds, there is a large bear, small bear islands. A cable car under the Sunlight Rock connected the Sunlight Rock and the Piano Park.
