Sometimes nature breaks the rules
Every so often we come across a wonder of nature that doesn’t quite make sense—it doesn’t seem real—like a pink lake. It’s both confusing and breathtaking.
There are not many natural pink lakes. They are found in a few places around the world—like Australia, Mexico, Africa, Europe and the Americas. The colour in most of them comes from microorganisms that produce a pink pigment when they interact with salt water. Almost all of them are saltier than the ocean. They may not be ideal for swimming but they are beautiful to look at.
