What about a swim in this bubble-gum pink lake?

Would you take a dip in this bubble-gum lake? What is it like to swim in there? This is something that I would like to discover. Lake Hillier is found on the Middle Island in West Australia. The vibrant colour is caused by the presence of micro-algae found in the lake. There are pink lakes in many other countries like Senegal, Canada, Spain, Australia and Azerbaijan but Lake Hillier is unique because the water does not change colour due to temperature fluctuations like the other lakes. The water from the lake can be used to treat stomach upsets, heartburn,nausea,diarrhea and indigestion. The pink water isn't toxic and it is safe to swim in. Are you ready to go for a swim now?

Haha. You do not have to worry if you can't swim. Due to the extreme salt concentration in the water you will just float in there. At least this will be an opportunity to enjoy and relax in the water.

You would like to dress in pink to swim in the pink lake. Lol. You do not need to worry about the algae as they are non toxic. In fact due to the salinity of the lake you will bob like a cork in your ballerina dress

It is my first time to see the pink lake. It seems very sweet to swim inside Perhaps this water is good for the skin because it is so unusual.

It might help with your allergies. Concerning the stain on your clothes, when you get out you might look similar to the Pink Panther.

It seems like a beverage, not a lake. I sure do not want to have anything to do with the water. The micro-algae must be very active to cause such a big change.

Yes the algae is the reason for this colour. The water is non toxic and can be used to cure several ailments
