Would love to make a boat trip on a pink lake, like you're floating around in a huge strawberry milkshake :)

Depending on the time of day, the lake changes colour from a light purple to a deep scarlet pink. The unusual colouring of the water is caused by harmless halophilic bacteria that thrive in the lake’s high-salinity environment. The color is particularlyvisible during the dry season. The strawberry colour is produced by salt-loving organism Dunaliella salina. They produce a red pigment that absorbs and uses the energy of sunlight to create more energy, turning the water pink.  


Many countries from around the world have pink lakes; Lake Retba in Senegal, Lake Hillier in Australia, Hutt Lagoon in Western Australia, Pink Lake in Australia, Quairading Pink Lake in Australia, Lake Eyre South in South Australia, Salina de Torrevieja in Spain, Le Salin de Gruissan in France, Lake Tuz Gola in Turkey, Dusty Rose Lake in Canada, Masazir Lake in Azerbaijan, Laguna Colorada in Bolivia, Champagne Pool in New Zealand, Salt ponds San Francisco Bay, etc
