SPOTTED LAKE, CANADA
Spotted Lake, situated in northwest of Osoyoos in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, Canada is completely different from other lakes that we normally see in our day today’s life. In winter and spring, the lake looks just like any other body of water.
The lake is peculiar because it undergoes an extraordinary transformation during summer. It spots with different colors and the waters resemble a polka-dot design. Different colors formed in the lake are the result of richly concentrated minerals, including calcium, magnesium sulphate and sodium sulphate. A collection of salts and the minerals are falling from surrounding hills. The mysterious lake is about 200 yards (0.25 km) wide and around half a mile (0.7 km) long.
LAKE HILLIER, AUSTRALIA
Lake Hillier is located in the vicinity of the coast of Middle Island in the Recherche Archipelago to the south of Western Australia. The lake is famous because of its truly stunning pink color and is a sight to behold. There’s no specific reason behind the Australia’s Lake becomes pink in color but many scientists do agree that it is probably because of the presence of a specific species of microalgae, called Dunaliella Salina. It is also expected that a large amounts of halophilic bacteria and archaea present in the lake could be the reason for the interesting appearance.
The Lake was first discovered by British Navigator and Cartographer, Mathew Flinders in 1802. He named the Lake Hillier after his deceased crew member William Hillier who had died of dysentery while harbored at the Middle Island. The area is protected nature reserve but you will be allowed to visit the mysterious lake under special circumstances.

Bats are the island’s only native mammal. The ancient and twisted dragon’s blood tree and the bulbous bottle tree are also bizarre things available in the island.
