Mumbai: We often associate blue with water but Mother Nature keeps throwing surprises at us as we discover her beauty and diversities. One such unique and rare nature’s creation lies is on the edge of Middle Island, off the south coast of Western Australia. Here, we are referring to Lake Hillier, a salt water lake that’s pink in colour.

Yes, the lake is pink in colour.

Scientists have not yet been able to fully understand the reason that makes this saline lake pink in appearance though it is considered to be so due to the presence of an organism named Dunaliella salina.

Spread over 600 meters, interestingly, Lake Hillier is not the only pink lake in the world.

Sadly, nature lovers and travel enthusiasts can only take an aerial view of this stunning water body as the lake cannot be visited, says hillierlake.com.
