Gemstone picking originated on the east coast at Nanyan,alternately called "the Lovers Beach" by the local Makrahay tribe.It has also been a popular dating spot for Amis lovers. Fishermen often fish along the long and broad beach around the 83 km mark on Provincial Highway No. 11. The mind easily becomes freshened up with a walk here,where one may enjoy the sea breeze,collect stones and seashells,and admire the isles of Sansiantai or Jingang Mountain. On windy winter days or after a typhoon in the summer,gemstones of various colors can be found here,even the precious president stone or blue chalcedony. However,the law prohibits stone picking and all stones found here must remain on premise.
