Senegal’s salt lakes look like Pepto-Bismol

Lake Retba Senegal is a deep pink color which comes from microorganisms called Dunaliella salina.

The pink water of Lake Retba, Cap Vert Peninsula, Senegal, west Africa. The rose color is caused by 'Dunaliella salina' algae in the water and is intensified during the dry season. Pink water? I wanna go there!
