野柳是一個突出海面的岬角, 長約1700公尺, 是北海岸地形的代表, 各種造型絕妙的奇岩怪石羅列, 如同一座天然的「石雕展覽館」, 遠望野柳如一隻海龜蹣跚離岸, 昂首拱背而游, 因此也稱為野柳龜. 受造山運動的影響, 深埋海底的沉積岩上升至海面, 經過海水侵蝕風化後, 產生了奇岩怪石, 蔚為奇觀, 堪稱地上龍宮. 早在十七世紀大航海時代,西班牙人將野柳岬稱做「魔鬼岬」, 因為野柳岬周圍海岸佈滿很多暗礁, 對過往船隻來說, 是個非常危險的航道, 加上漲退潮差變化, 時常有船難發生因此有「魔鬼岬」之稱.

而最早在此從事漁獵活動是平埔族的巴賽族人, 傳說「野柳」地名可能就是來自平埔語. 到了明代中葉, 因為駐軍太少, 而成為海盜屯據的地方.

清代以後福建漳州移民以野柳岬為天然屏障, 在不受東北季風吹襲的北側大灣澳中興建漁港, 從此發展了較有規模的漁村, 並興建「保安宮」, 安奉隨他們ㄧ路渡海來台的家鄉保護神 - 開漳聖王.

民國以後到1960年間, 一直被劃為軍事要塞禁地, 1964年才開放觀光, 而發展成為著名的觀光景點. 岬上依地形分隔, 由近而遠分成3大區, 可對其作實地探訪, 野柳除了千萬年來造出的奇特地形景觀之外, 附近灣澳並形成漁村聚落, 擁有豐富的人文活動, 很適合不同年齡層來此一遊.

This panorama was taken in Taiwan, Asia

This is an overview of Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.

Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?

China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.

Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.

Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.

I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.

The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.

China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
