Isn’t it just gorgeous?

 

Its distinct pink colour is caused by the Dunaliella salina bacteria

The bacteria produces a red pigment in order to absorb the sunlight and that gives the lake its pink colour

Not many living organisms can survive in the lake due to its high salinity, so it is mostly used for salt production and as a tourist attraction
