Bucket List | Australia

You’ve probably seen these images floating around on the web, but this Pepto Bismol pink lake really exists. Unique for its color and high salt content, Lake Hillier is located on an island off the southern coast of Western Australia. The reason for the unique color is the high salinity and a specific type of algae. It’s difficult to visit, but if you’re lucky enough to take a helicopter tour and actually get dropped off on site, you can take a dip in the pink waters. Because of the high salinity, you’ll float!
