Rockscapes along the Southern Coastline of Coloane

  Coloane houses most of the natural rockscapes of the outlying islands of Macao with many bizarre and well-known rocks scattered across its terrain. These natural formations which stand in different postures and having a close resemblance to the shapes of animals are closely associated with the history, legends and folkways of Coloane Island. They are a part of Macao’s admirable landscape and alive in the collective memories of the people for their indispensability in the origination of the customs practiced by the islanders.

Total walking time: 1 hour and 24 minutes
