Red Beach Panjin China is located in Dawa County, in the Liaohe River Delta, China. This beach is also known as Red Beach Panjin because it is located in the Panjin area. It is called the red beach because every fourth quarter, the water area will turn into a sea of red blood.
Unlike the beach in general, the beach in Panjin does not have a stretch of white sand. The wetlands area covered with seaweed species. The wetlands are the largest grassland in the world, about 18 miles southwest of Panjin town, northeast of Liaoning Province, China.
The red color of this wetland is obtained from a weed plant called Suaeda Salsa that covers it. This kind of seaweed plants grow in April to May. At first this plant grows in green as a regular plant.
Because it absorbs high levels of alkaline salt, the plant changes color to bright red and dark red for mature species. Usually the color changes occur in the fall, which is around the end of August to early September. This plant will wither and die when its color turns purple, which is around October.
Although only known to the world since around 2010, this place has attracted many tourists from various parts of the world to see the uniqueness and beauty. However, most of the coastal area is a conservation area so that the public can only visit a small portion of it.
Development of red-covered beach area has actually been done since 1984 to serve as ecotourism tourist destinations. In order for tourists to stay access to this eyegasm nature reserve, a 6,500 foot bridge is built for tourists to walk on it while enjoying the stunningly beautiful scenery.
For tourists who want to visit this place, they can use the train or bus from Panjin City. Currently it is easier access because many travel agency agents who offer tours to Red Beach.
The reason why the Red Beach area is protected by the government is because it has become home to over 400 species of wild animals. It is also home to migratory bird species each year from East Asia to Australia, there are about 260 species. Can see the birds migrate also become a good advantage for this eco tourist spot.
This place has been promoted as a national-level nature conservation area in 1988. It has also been set up to join an international private network and biosphere protectorate.
Being a tourist attraction that part of the area opened to the public will certainly cause various impacts, both positive and negative. The clash between sanctuary protection and human activities with economic goals will always be faced. Indeed not all human activities are causing adverse effects, but of course irresponsible human acts will be a threat to the wild animals and biodiversity that exist there.
One of the worst human economic activities is the Liaohe Oil Field, one of the largest oil wells in China. The well is rumored in 2015 is the third largest in China since it was operated in 1970. Oil mining equipment such as jack pumps has now become a common sight along the coast.
That would certainly threaten the survival of the species in the habitat at Red Beach. Fortunately, as China Scenic Magazine noted that in recent years the development of technology and environmental sensitivity has been increasing. This makes the oil field now cleaner.
Another threat comes from economic growth in the field of seafood cultivation and rice fields. This creates competition between wild animals that live in the Red Beach area and people become more fierced.
As a potential tourist, of course we do not want the beauty of this beach tarnished, let alone to cause extinction in species that live there. For that, the best way that can be done as a tourist is to keep the beach environment clean. Do not let our tourism activities also add a threat to Red Beach Panjin China.
