Sanpo StoneThere is an old saying goes that long ago, there were only three handsome young men living in Sanniang Bay. They stuck together and helped each other in difficulties. One day, three fairies coming to the bay and attracted by the beautiful sites of the bay and moved by the assiduous young men. They decided to marry with the young men. However, the god of heaven permitted them just living in the world for three years. Every day, the young men fished on the sea, while the fairies were weaving at home. They were living a happy life. Three days was passed, but the three fairies forgot to go back, which made the god of heave angry. He lifted big wave and strong wind when the young men were fishing on the sea. The three fairies were waiting for their husband for several days but finally got the news of their death. The three fairies turned to granites, standing on the beach forever. The three pieces of granites are called Sanpo Stone (sān pó shí 三婆石). The bay is also named after the stones.
