Located in Panjin city, Liaoning Province (550km from Beijing, 155km from Shenyang city, 260km from Dalian and 102 km from Jinzhou downtown), Red Beach Scenic Area covers an area of 133333333m2 and is renowned for the fantastic “red beach”. Blessed with the largest and best preserved wetland in the world, it harbors 266 kinds of precious birds and 399 kinds of wild animals. Besides, it also boasts 573 333 333m2 reed wetland which is unseen anywhere in the world, where rare birds include Red-crowned Crane, thrive. 

Red Beach comprises three scenic spots: Red Beach Dock, Reed Sea Crane-watching Area and Moon Bay Wetland Park.

Red Beach Dock sits at the delta area where the Niao River flows into the sea. It is the only pure wood architecture sits above the mud shoal in the world. The “Nine Bend Gallery Bridge” zigzags its course 618 m long before sliding into the ocean. Supported by 519 wood columns, it is very stable. The 2000m2 wood sightseeing platform towers above the Red Beach and offers spectacular perspective of Red Beach. Tides come and recede, bringing splendor and thundering voices. The secret of “Red Beach” lies in a plant named blite. Blite can only survive in salty area. The interesting phenomenon is that the more sea water it sucks, the deeper color it will adopt. Each May will see this plant burst out buds. While June, July and August will witness it grow taller and transform from emerald green to burning red. From September to November, it will turn brown red or purple. Besides pleasing your eye, it can feed your stomach also. This plant is eatable and has saved the local people in the 1950s when one famine stroke China.
