What comes to mind when someone mentions the word ‘beach’? Sea, a refreshing breeze, and white or golden sand, isn’t it? But what if I introduce you to a beach with no sand? It sounds weird, but is actually true. China is home to a dreamy beach which has no sand and moreover is red in colour. Take a look at the Red Beach in Panjin, China, and get lost in its surprising beauty.
This Beach With No Sand In China Is Simply Stunning
Located just six hours’ drive from Beijing is this wonderful spot in China. The Red Beach in Panjin, which is also known as Panjin Red Beach, has no sand at all.
In fact, it is situated on one of the biggest wetlands across the globe. This beach is known for its unique crimson-colored seepweed, which is also known as Suaeda.
Known as one of the prettiest destinations to visit in China, this place turns completely dreamy during the autumn season. Hence, this place sees a huge tourist inflow from the months of September to October, mainly in October.
The beach turns red because a kind of seepweed grows there and has a high saline absorption capacity. It turns red as it absorbs the seawater from its surroundings.
