Information

The ‘Pink’ colour of the lakes is caused by a red pigment secreted by an alga called Dunaliella salina, which appears in the lakes after winter rains. The colours, ranging from a deep pink to a pure glistening white, are best seen during Spring - early or late in the day, during bright moon-lit nights or when it is cloudy. In fact, during most times of the year, the Pink Lakes are a pretty amazing sight.
