Pink Lake

by | Nov 25, 2015

A pink lake? Yes you heard us correctly.
Hutt Lagoon, located near Port Gregory in Western Australia is a salt water lake formed by a beach barrier ridge and a barrier dune system, separating it from the vast Indian Ocean. The water of the lake is pink due to the presence of two types of algae that produces a reddish-orange organic pigment called Beta-Carotene, that is used commercially as a coloring pigment in food and medicines and it is the world’s largest system of algae farms dedicated to the production of this pigment.
If this pink lake is not enough for you, there is another one, Lake Hillier, located off the south coast of Western Australia.
