There are lots of amazing outdoor swimming areas in the world. Some of them are safe and protected with lifeguards watching over you while you swim, bathe, dive off rocks, and play in the water. But some beaches are not just unsafe — they’re outright dangerous! Here are 8 places where you should never attempt a swim if you treasure your health and life.
Blue Holes 1:03
Colorful Pools 2:15
Laguna Caliente 4:18
Nyiragongo Crater's Lava Lake 5:16
Pink Lake 6:19
New Smyrna Beach 8:12
Frying Pan Lake 9:22
Eagle's Nest Sinkhole 10:22
- Most blue holes are open to the public. However, some of the biggest ones have acquired a really bad reputation among divers.
- It's hard to believe that nature created something as colorful as the thermal pools located in Yellowstone National Park. They look like something from another world: bright, beautiful...and deadly.
- Laguna Caliente is located in Costa Rica and differs dramatically from its sibling, Botos Lake. These 2 bodies of water are crater lakes of the Poas Volcano.
- Mount Nyiragongo, which is situated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, is an active volcano. Its last eruption took place in 2002. In its crater, there's a lake. But it’s not your typical lake.
- Lake Hillier in Western Australia is indeed as pink as it looks. This is a shallow salt lake that’s beautifully edged with white salt formations and surrounded by eucalyptus forests.
- New Smyrna Beach has been called the “Shark Capital of the World” by the International Shark Attack File. In 2008, almost 40% of all shark attacks on the planet happened in this region.
- If you look at the photo of Frying Pan Lake in New Zealand, you might think that there's fog hanging low over the water. Similar fog (or, more precisely, steam) forms over warm water on a cold morning.
- Eagle's Nest Sinkhole is a body of water in Florida that looks like an ordinary pond. It’s only when you get into the water that it gets dangerous. Beneath the lake, there's a huge system of underwater caves with rooms and passages that spread for miles.

I lived in NSB for years and have family that still do and this video is a flat out lie. New Smyrna Beach, Florida is one of the most beautiful beaches and the sand is almost white and the ocean is beautiful. I've never have seen a shark there and I've never seen or heard of all these "attacks" that are claimed in this video!
I wouldn't visit Frying Pan Lake, Nyiragongo and Laguna Caliente. But I WOULD visit New Smyrna Beach, Florida. I wouldn't swim, though. And I would visit Yelowstone National Park. Don't wanna swim there either.
The water becomes very blue, or darkish black or dark blue if the sea gets deeper, like the blue holes, you'll sea the light water, and there's a blue hole, which means there is really a hole, you'll fall down and you won't swim back up alive.. ( If you exhaust yourself )
I love the Pink lake. It makes me crazy that no one can figure out what causes it to be pink. You'd think with all the technology and scientists out there they could figure it out by now -.-" guess not
i would have to say Lake Karachay when it was still a lake.
The sediment of the lake bed is estimated to be composed almost entirely of high level radioactive waste deposits to a depth of roughly 11 feet.
I know for lake ``Karachay`` in russia,used by the soviet goverment to leave nuclear waste there,cause near that lake was a nuclear power plant,i think the city where it was in was called ``City - 40``
Technically, Lake Hillier is safe to swim in since there are no toxic contents in the water and it is, by now, pretty certain that the colour is due to the bacteria inhabiting the water and coastline.
Also, it would have been nice to add that shark attacks are generally very, very rare and can be avoided by appropriate behaviour. Don't stigmatise these beautiful creatures more than they already are. There have been a total of 66 unprovoked attacks in 2018 with 4 fatalities. Approximately 100 million sharks are killed by humans every year.
The cause of Lake Hilliers Pink hue has been known ! It’s red halophilic bacteria , which is also found in the red salt-crusted portions of the Owens Lake riverbed in Ca. & Nv’s pink salt flats. In the water itself, there live Dunaliella Salina, microorganisms that turn water w/ salt content red.
Um...according to national geographic, "spencer lake gets its pink hue from the beta-carotine pigment (the same pigment that makes carrots orange) which accumulates in certain species of algae. The super salinity of the lake encourages the growth of this algae so the reduction in salinity results in a reduction of the pink pigment in the water." so...they do know why it's pink?
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
