Red Beach – Panjin, China

The sea-blite plant beings growing in late spring around April and May, it starts growing green. Then as the seasons begin to change it becomes a fiery red. The sea-blite plant grows in other areas on the coast but never turns to the beautiful red color. For the most part it is believed the seaweed turns red due to it being alkali tolerant. Some scientists say it is due to the alkaline-saline soil that is there. Other scientists believe it has something to do with all of the wildlife, particularly birds retreat to this great place.
