Twin Candlestick Islets

The Twin Candlestick Islets (Chinese: ?; pinyin: Zhútái Shu?ng Y?) are islets in Jinshan District, New Taipei, Taiwan.


The islets were once part of Jinshan Cape. Due to the continuous movement of tectonics plates and coastal erosion, they separated from the island of Taiwan. Initially they were a single rock arch, but the top collapsed thus made them look like two candlesticks.[1][2][3]


The islets are located 450 meters off the coast of Jinshan Cape.[4] The highest elevation of the islets is 60 meters.[5]
