"This means that wealth growth is boosted by strong levels of woman safety in a country," read the report, as reported by the Daily Mail. The report also noted that out of 195 countries, only 58 had reasonably reliable crime statistics. Australia, Malta, Iceland, New Zealand, and Canada remained in the top five for the second year running.

At the same time, green alga Dunaliella salina, halobacterium Halobacteria cutirubrum, and/or high concentration of brine prawn also are the reasons for the water to turn pink in color.

This protected area is considered to be of great cultural and spiritual significance.
