You see that? Yup, it’s a real lake. Lake Hillier. Right on the edge of Middle Island, off the south coast of Western Australia. It’s known for it’s pink colour thanks to Dunaliella salina, a carotenoid-causing micro-algae. 

Despite the high levels of saline (or shall I say, salt), this lake is pretty much harmless. Swim-able, even! However, there aren’t many ways to reach Lake Hillier. A helicopter ride is one of the most common methods to get there. Cruises are also an option for you curious minds out there wanting to visit the isolated lake and surrounding forest area!
