      Natural Wonders | Lake Retba, also known as Lac Rose in Senegal, is so named for its pink waters, caused by Dunaliella salina algae in the water. The color 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

      Lake Retba or Lac Rose lies north of the Cap Vert peninsula of Senegal. This lake has an unusual color – it’s pink. Lake Retba’s pink waters are caused by cyanobacteria in the water. The color 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. Bucket list

      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.
