    Bucket list for shalisse! LAKE RETBA Lake Retba, or Lac Rose, is a stunning pink lake in Senegal, Africa, located to the North of the Cap Vert peninsula. The lake is obviously named for its bright pink waters, which are caused by the algae Dunaliella salina. The colour appears to be more vivid during the dry season, and as well as being pink, the lake also has a high salinity, similar to that of the Dead Sea, which allows people to float.

Segenal France - Lake Retba - bacteria in the water makes it pink

In the center of a majestic ocean, I sat next to my master in a tiny boat. “How vast and beautiful it is,” I gasped in wonder. Smiling with sparkling benevolent eyes, he whispered,“The ocean you behold is merely the surface of your precious golden heart. Immerse yourself into its glorious depths, and behold your true spiritual nature. You are soul, the inimitable splendour of God’s divine love.”

♥Lake Retba, Senegal. It's named for its pink waters, caused by Dunaliella salina algae in the water that produce a red pigment that uses sunlight to create more energy, turning the waters pink. The colour is particularly visible during the dry season. The lake is also known for its high salt content, which, like that of the Dead Sea, allows people to float easily.
