Red algae are creatures that live in the water column. It is a kind of sea grass. Only the grass is not green, as we are used to, but bright pink.

Simply because their organization is inherently very interesting: the algae absorb all the sun’s energy and “settle” for all the ultraviolet rays.

When is the best time to visit the Red Beach in China

Nature looks most “bloody” in the fall. Since the algae begin to “develop” in the spring, just in time for the fall, a “bloody” carpet grows out of the green, at first glance, most ordinary shrubs.

Panjin Red Beach, a natural wonder in northeastern China

Whether it’s your first time on Chinese soil or you’ve lived in the country for several years, traveling in China is a great way to learn more about the culture, history and life of our Chinese contemporaries. With the help of our China Travel Guide project, you can not only expand the geography of tourist places in the country, but also learn local smart tricks. Let’s go?

Panjin Red Beach (红毯盘锦/ 盘锦红海滩)

Northeastern China, Liaoning Province, Liaohe River Delta is located 23 km from Panjin City (盘锦) in the Shuangtai-Hekou National Nature Reserve entrance fee for each area: 80 yuan

Panjin Red Beach is one of the most colorful natural attractions in China. Located in the province of Liaoning, it is positioned by the Chinese as the world’s second largest wetland, carefully preserved in its original state by man. Red Beach was the salvation of an entire generation of Chinese experiencing hunger in the 1960s: here you could hunt animals and fish, collect roots, stems and seeds from plants mixed with cornmeal.

Why Red Beach.

Sand is the first thing that comes to mind when we talk about a beach, but you won’t find a single grain of sand at Red Beach, located near the city of Panjin in northeastern China. In fact, this is not a beach at all, but the name comes from the grass Suaeda prostrata, which grows on seashores and the shores of saltwater reservoirs. Sveda begins to grow in April, remaining green, but in the autumn takes on a rich red color. Therefore, to see the fantastic red carpet stretching for many kilometers, you need to come in the fall, in September or October.

The place, open to tourists, is only a small part of the huge Shuantai-Hekou Nature Reserve (辽宁双台河口国家级自然保护区), covering 600,000 hectares. The endless red fields are set in a reedy swamp with a unique ecosystem. The reserve is a major resting place for migratory birds traveling from Eastern Europe and Asia to Australia. Each year 250 species of birds pass through this reserve, of which 20 species are listed in the Red Book.

The soil at Red Beach is clay and wet, so there are wooden decks on high legs and observation decks along the red beaches for the convenience of tourists.

How to get there

The starting point for Red Beach is the city of Panjin, which is best reached from Beijing by night train. Or you can take the high-speed train from Shenyang to Panjin, with a travel time of 1.5 hours.

It’s not easy to get to Red Beach by public transportation. The fact that it is divided into two zones, each of which requires its own ticket. The distance between these areas is very large. Bus takes you only to the entrance of the park, but from the entrance to the red beach is a long way to walk. Most likely, you will be offered their services by private tuk-tuks, but they are not always there.

The easiest way to see Red Beach is to take a day trip to local travel agencies in Panjing or Shenyang. Or rent a cab for the day, no money is charged for cab fare to the park, and the driver will show you the most picturesque places.

How to get around the park

Red Beach Park consists of two areas:

  • Gallery (廊道) was opened in 2015, all sightseeing areas are along the same road, many long bridges, there are areas just with the sea or with rice paddies.
  • Liaohe River Delta (辽河口) – here, in addition to the red fields, you can see other landscapes, there are areas overgrown with reeds, which look like a green-gold sea, shimmering waves in the wind.

The entrance fee to each zone is 80 yuan. One day is enough to visit both areas.

Where to Stay

You can stay overnight at one of the hotels in Panjing, but there are virtually no offers on English-language websites. A wide range of hotels can be found only on Chinese sites, such as Ctrip.

What to do

Marvel at the cosmic scenery, breathe the clean sea air. Walk on the sun-whitened wooden bridges and watch the many little crabs living in the wet soil. Take a boat ride among the red fields. Stay until evening and admire the sunset.
