Lake Hillier, Western Australia
If you never thought a pink lake could exist, think again. This bright pink lake belongs in the backyard of an alien home. But lucky for us, it’s also in Western Australia and is located on Middle Island. The contrast between the dark blue waters, green forest, and pink lake is striking and makes a stunning natural palette of colors. Scientists still aren’t 100% sure how the lake gets its rosy hue, but they suspect it’s the Dunaliella salina microalgae found in the lake. You’ll get stunning views whether you’re flying above it on a plane, or walking next to it. It’s shaped like a footprint and measures 600 meters wide. It’s very possible it could be the footprint of an alien, but we’ll never really know (Western Australia).
