This stunning lake in Torrevieja, Spain might look like it has been touched up with a photo filter, but its dusky pink hues are 100 percent natural. It's caused by a microscopic algae called Dunaliella salina that thrives in waters with high salt content. Click through or swipe for more photos of pink lakes and beaches.
