Lake Retba

A pink lake!!
Lake Retba or Lac Rose lies north of the Cap Vert peninsula of Senegal, north east of Dakar.
It is so named for its pink waters, caused by Dunaliella salina in the water. The colour is particularly visible during the dry season. The lake is also known for its high salt content. (Thank you wikipedia)
