Senegal's Lake Retba, or as the French refer to it Lac Rose, is pinker than any milkshake. Experts say the lake gives off its pink hue due to cyanobacteria, a harmless halophilic bacteria found in the water. Lake Retba has a high salt content, much like that of the Dead Sea, allowing people to float effortlessly in the massive pink water x WOW.

Palau’s Jellyfish Lake once had an outlet to the sea, but is now connected to the ocean through fissures and tunnels in the surrounding limestone. Millions of jellyfish were trapped in the basin when sea levels dropped, and over time they evolved into a species that have lost the ability to sting because they don’t have to fight off predators. Jellyfish Lake is a snorkeling and swimming extravaganza where you can get up close and personal with an estimated 10 million Jellyfish.

15 Bucket-List Trips You Can Totally Afford

9. Float In The Dead Sea Taking a dip in the Dead Sea isn’t as easy as you may think since the salinity levels of this salt lake make swimming more like floating. Although floating in this body of water is surreal, the main draw for most bucketlisters is that the mud and water are supposed to have therapeutic and beautifying effects. Baking in the mud is like putting an amazing mineral mask all over your body
