MONETA, Va., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Earthquakes, volcanoes, meteorites, and glaciers created many of our world's magnificent lakes. Lakelubbers, an online guide to 1,625 vacation lakes, has named ten of the world's most unusual lakes.
Draper Lake is a rare coastal dune lake that is alternately freshwater and saltwater. Its Florida Gulf ecosystem supports a unique biodiversity that earns it protected status. Residents have mounted an aggressive effort to protect Florida's dune lakes from the Gulf oil spill.
13,020 feet above sea level on Hawaii's tropical Big Island, tiny Lake Waiau freezes during winter.
Through a natural phenomenon, Virginia's Mountain Lake has emptied and re-filled about six times during the past 4,500 years.
On the Greek island of Kefalonia, tourists are rowed - and pulled by rope - through the underground Melissani Lake, in a massive cave decorated with stalactites and stalagmites.
