Colorful Beach Scenic Area

On almost every inch of the 1.5 kilometers of Colorful Beach coastaline, 20~50-high marine erosion cliffs develop and rise up, forming splendid and spectacular sceneries; flat and wide marine erosion platforms are built in front of marine erosion cliffs, dozens or even hundreds meters of marine erosion platforms surprisingly reveal when tides ebb; under the morning sunshine, mosses and sea water on marine erosion platforms shine colorfully and gorgeously. At the junction of marine erosion cliffs and marine erosion platforms, different shapes of marine erosion caves can be found everywhere. The “trinity” marine erosion platform landscape of marine erosion cliffs, marine erosion caves and marine erosion platforms is rare on China coast and island rocky coastlines, its large scale and typical, complete and concentrated views amaze its tourists.

Active Marine Erosion Cliffs

Active marine erosion cliffs refer to the steep rock cliffs distribute along coastline, they are the most conspicuous, the most spectacular and the most characteristic landform landscapes on Weizhou Island. Marine erosion cliffs are formed by waves, gravity and tectonism. During tide periods, erosion caused by waves on coastline is continuously strengthened, bedrocks on coastline are rushed constantly and form caves – marine erosion caves. As marine erosion caves gradually get deeper, bedrocks on coastline collapse under gravity, when there are joints, fractures and other structural planes, rocks collapse along fracture and joint planes and form steep cliffs, coastline continuously retreats, collapsed rocks are constantly abraded by tides and waves and finally appear as fragments on sand beach.
