The Black Reef refers to a scenic coastline of Dalian city, Liaoning Province, China. The reef was formed millions of years ago. The coast was shaped by the dissolution of limestone by ocean waves and surface water. It is a typical karst landscape. It was known as the “Stone Forest on the Sea.” But recently, as people reclaimed land indiscriminately, the exposed rocks are getting destroyed, and marine species are declining sharply.
