Pantai Bondi di Sydney, Australia selama ini menjadi ikon dari kota tersebut. Namun pantai yang airnya bersih itu, tiba-tiba warna airnya berubah seperti merah darah.

Sekumpulan alga merah ternyata ditemukan berada di sekitar pantai tersebut. Mereka diketahui bisa menyebabkan warna air laut yang biru berubah menjadi merah.

Pemandangan langka ini bisa terjadi karena dipengaruhi kondisi cuaca tertentu. Alga itu diketahui alhasil, sekitar pantai Bondi dan Teluk Gordon tampak seperti lautan darah.

"Sedikit mengeluarkan bau amis. Kondisi pantai ini membuat kulit orang gatal, tetapi hanya itu yang diakibatkan oleh alga unik ini," ujar penjaga pantai Australia, Bruce Hopkins, seperti dikutip Orange, Kamis (29/11/2012).

Akibat gangguan alga ini, beberapa bagian Pantai Bondi dan Teluk Gordon terpaksa di tutup.(faj)
