Susaan Hoi

This looks like a bunch of cement slabs emerging from the sea.


But actually they are sheets of fossilized shells. They are about 40 million years old and appear only in a few places in the world. Susaan means cemetary, and hoi means shell or mollusc.

Other than acknowleding their existance by taking pictures, I know too little about this to write authoritatively. So I'm afraid you'll have to crawl away and research this on your own. :)
