Located to the northwest of Haitan Island and 1.4 kilometers from Kan'ao village in Su'ao town, Shipaiyang Rock Sails is one of the most marvelous natural wonders in Pingtan. Travelers are often struck by the sight of the rocks.
It is composed of two gigantic granite rocks of different heights standing facing each other. The higher one is 33 meters tall, while the lower one is 17 meters tall. They stand gloriously in the midstream, just like two pillars holding up the sky. They are picked up by a reef plate at the bottom, like a ship hoisting its sail. In the morning fog or glow of a sunset, the sea glows with wave light, while the two stones look like two large ships cruising with hoisted sails.
