This scarlet place lies in Panjin, in the county of Dawa in China. His name is Red Beach, but it is not a real beach. The red color is due to particular plant called Suaeda genus of which there are a hundred variations and that grow in moist areas of the world, where the depths are low and tides very mild.

When ripe the color is very intense

The Suaeda is one of those rare types of vegetation that can live in highly alkaline soils. The life cycle begins in April when it is colored by a faint red and when it is fully ripe the color becomes very intense.
