This salt lake, located in Port Gregory in Western Australia, has striking vibrant pink coloring. This unusual water hue comes from Dunaliella salina, which is from a carotenoid producing algae. The same algae is used as a food coloring agent, in cosmetics, and in some supplements. If you want to see this lagoon at its most vivid time, it's best to go between 10 AM and 2 PM when the sun is high and the sky is clear.
