Мы продолжаем хит-парад невероятных чудес нашей планеты. Сегодня наше внимание привлекло ярко-розовое озеро Ретба в Сенегале.

The water in Senegal’s Lake Retba always seems to have a pinkish hue to it. However, catch it during the dry summer months and you will see it turn strawberry pink and sometimes, even red. The good news is that color is not the result of chemicals being dumped in the lake but nature, working its magical tricks!

Located in the Cape Vert Peninsula that lies north east of Senegal’s capital Dakar,the lake’s unusual appearance is caused by a salt-loving green micro alga that resides in the lake, known for its high concentration of the mineral.
