    Lake Retba in Senegal is a pretty strawberry color due to a salt loving organism which gives the lake higher salt content than the Dead Sea. #travel - @Bethany Salvon (BeersandBeans) OH MY GOD! PINK LAKE?! NEED TO GO!

    Pink Lake Retba, Senegal. This is why I love Pinterest. Never knew this place existed. Amazing.

  • Pinar Akkaya

    Amazing pink lake!!! Waow! Situated north of the Cap Vert Peninsula in Senegal, northeast of Dakar, Lake Retba, or as the French refer to it Lac Rose, is pinker than any milkshake you’ve ever come face to straw with. If the color weren’t enough to make you smile, it should be known that Lake Retba has a high salt content, much like that of the Dead Sea, allowing people to float effortlessly in the massive pink water. In fact, Lake Retba has an almost one and a half times higher salt content than the Dead Sea.
