Pink Lake in Dakar

The Pink Lake in Dakar in Senegal, as you can see in these images, is indeed naturally pink!   Watch the video…

The Pink Lake, Lake Retba (Lac Rose), has a high salt content, a perfect living conditions for micro-algae called dunaliella salina. Like this lake in southern France.
