View our crewed luxury yacht charter destinations of Spain
Tucked away in Valencia, Spain is the natural park of Las Salinas de Torrevieja—a gorgeous pink-water lake-one of the most impressive natural parks of Valencia, and not to be missed on a private yacht charter along the Spanish Costa del Azahar. The natural phenomenon of rose-tinted water is possible thanks to the archaeas (a micro-organism) and dunaliellas (micro-seaweeds) found in the lake giving the entire lake its pink-colored hue and the pink to the color of the feathers of the local lamingos that dine on these micro-organisms.. Adding to the “wow” factor are the huge mountains of salt piled high along the shore line gathered from the lake that has been sold for centuries. Be sure to pick up some natural Torrevieja salt for yourself.
