Tan Dinh Church, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Royal Hawaiian Hotel, Honolulu, HI

Cameron Falls, Alberta, Canada
To set the record straight: Cameron Falls in Alberta doesn’t always flow pink. In fact, its muddy pink waters were only spotted once. Local scientists believe that there was a rockslide after heavy rain, pushing argillite (red rocks that contains oxidized iron) into the creek. While all good things must come to an end, we’ve got our fingers crossed that this one will happen again.
Riomaggiore, Cinque terre, Italy
The Cinque Terre is one of the prettiest parks in Italy. Five multi-coloured villages are located along the seacoast, united by a network of hiking trails.

Tangsi Beach, Lombok, Indonesia
On the eastern shore of Lombok island, you’ll find Tangsi: just one of ten beaches in the world with sand that’s entirely pink. How? Over time, water washed millions of red coral fragments up from the seabed, and when mixed with normal sand, the beach turned a delicious shade of pink.
Hawa Mahal, Jaipur, India

The cause of Lake Hillier’s color is totally unknown, but most researchers agree that it has probably something to do with a specific species of algae called Dunaliella Salina.
The Don CeSar, St Pete Beach, Florida
If you’re looking for a bit of glam and sophistication, the Don CeSar in St Pete is where it’s at. Since it opened in 1928, it’s been a retreat to the world’s elite: actors, authors and even U.S presidents.

If you want to snap photos that look like you have the palace to yourself, head here first thing in the morning or in the late afternoon.

After a visit to Hutt Lagoon in Australia, you’ll be thinking “algae never looked so good!” The town of Port Gregory was once a small fishing village, but now is a holiday hotspot for fishing and diving. Depending on the time of year and weather, the algae in Hutt Lagoon cause the water to transform from a red to pink to purple. The best time of day to visit is typically mid-morning or sunset.
