The very definition of incredible! Perched atop a stratovolcano in Flores you will find three crater lakes: Tiwu Ata Mbupu, Tiwu Nuwa Muri Koo Fai and Tiwu Ata Pol. Each lake has its own unique look and chemical makeup.
4. Boiling Lake
The Boiling Lake is located in the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, Dominica’s World Heritage site. It is a flooded fumarole, or hole in the earth’s surface. It is filled with bubbling greyish-blue water that is usually enveloped in a cloud of vapor.

This is a famous one. You’ll find it glittering prettily on nearly each Canadian post card! The waters of Banff National Park’s Peyto Lake are a brilliant turquoise more often associated with warm-weather paradises like Antigua and Bora-Bora.
