It was raining when we got there but I was still able to see the two colors. Though I wasn't able to go near and get a nicer photo, it was still a good experience.

This is a nice place to take photos as the high contrast colours of the sea water makes it very picturesque. There is a specially built area for picture taking on the hill.

The name yin-yang here represents the clash of two different colors. You'll see yellow, which is from the copper mines nearby and blue, from the sea. The clash of the two colors makes the view a bit artsy and nice to take a picture. You'll...More

Don't think there is anything special about this. Further, it is best to go up to the TOP of the mountain to be able to get a better view. But only if you have the time.

The drizzle increased speed when we were at the viewing platform of the sea. We were not able to see the two colors of the sea water. Sun light is critical for visitors to appreciate the scenery.

According to our guide, the bay is multi colored because of a now abandoned iron processing facility which is high above the coastline. When the Japanese occupied the island, apparently the water used by the plant flowed to the seas carrying the various chemicals. This...More

of its glorious past through the Golden Waterfall.
