This beautiful lagoon features naturally pink water that is utterly surprising and surreal.

Located in a small fishing village on the Yucatán Peninsula, the lagoon is tinted pink do to unusually high count of tiny brine shrimp.

And thanks to Instagram, travellers have been able to find the lagoon fairly easily. "I couldn’t believe what I saw,” says Marisa Hampe, a German traveler who spotted the lagoon on her recent trip to Mexico. “I had never heard of a pink sea; it’s a unique and magical place, like a dream.”

The lagoon is part of the the Ría Lagartos Biosphere Reserve of Las Coloradas, found on the eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. If you get the chance to visit this incredible spot in person, be sure to explore the the old salt factory while you're there.
