#TheGreatBeautyofGuangdong Covering an area of approximately 104.2 hectares, mangrove forests have formed small emerald-green islands scattered across the sea. Jinniu Island in Zhanjiang is famous for its thousand islands created by ten thousand trees. The mangrove forests, also known as the “forests of the sea”, have become an abundant source of fish and shrimp and a natural paradise for migratory birds. The Zhanjiang Mangrove National Nature Reserve in Guangdong is the largest and most concentrated protected area of mangrove forests in China, earning Zhanjiang a reputation as the “City of Mangroves”.
