A Pink Lake in WA


The brilliance of the Pink Lake, also known as Hutt Lagoon, near Port Gregory in WA grabs your attention as you drive past. We had to stop for a closer look.

The colouration is caused by an algae that tolerates high salinity and produces carotenoids that give it the pink hue that changes dramatically depending upon the light.

    • Ha ha – thank you for the clarification. I don’t think Washington State has the right environmental conditions for pink lakes.

      • True, but I don’t think the everyday person would think anywhere has the right environmental conditions for a pink lake. A pink lake is an amazing thing which is why you wrote about it, everyone would be interested. But that’s my ignorance of assuming everything is American or suppose to be. I forget other countries use abbreviations, too, lol.


  2. I can’t wait to visit the pink lake it looks so different in real photos compared to promotional ones
