Grünes Riff von Laomei - Laomei Green Reef

Laomei Green Reef, New Taipei 2017

Situated on the north coast of Taiwan, the Green Reef of Laomei is a unique geological formation made of lava from a volcanic eruption. After the two eruptions of Datun Mountain 2.5 million years ago and 700,000 years ago, volcanic rocks formed on the north coast of Taiwan. Over an extended period, the oceans thawed these rocks into a large group of stone moors.

Between February and May green algae bloom on the surface of these stones and create a natural carpet of lush green. This stunning coastal landscape is only visible in the right months and during low tide hours.
