Pink Lake

The water in the lake is pink due to the bloom of Dunaloella algae and the lake water's high salinity, which in combination can create brilliant colors. This algae is not harmful to organisms and humans. On the contrary, it can be very useful. It can be used as food for some aquatic species and creatures that live in the water. However, in contrast to the brilliant beauty of the lake, algae makes the pond smell bad.
