“WoW, check out the strawberry milkshake lake”

Wow, can you imagine your life on the coast of pink lake?

First time I saw this lake, i thought, wow it is amazing if it is a true.

Strawberry milkshake lake. It is named by its pink water.

Later in my search, I really found it is true and I wanted to share it with you. Lake Retba or Lac Rose lies north of the Cap Peninsula of Senegal, north east of Dakar.

Pink water look is caused by organism Dunaliella salina, that produce a red pigment and use the energy of sunlight, turning the water pink, from many minerals and microorganisms in the water. This lake is similar to Dead Sea, because of high content of salt.
