Full description
Lake Retba, also known as Pink Lake and Lake Rose, is one of the most visited sites in Senegal. This salt lake owes its fame to the original and changing color of its waters, but also to the Paris-Dakar rally, which holds its final stage here. The pink color of this lake is due to the effect of the algae Dunaliella salina. Many tourists come here from all over the world to see the incredible effect. Relax with a pickup from your hotel, or from the port of Dakar, before learning all the history of this fantastic place. The visit lasts 4 hours. You will be accompanied by a professional accredited tourist guide who will inspire you to explore the lagoon and see the sand dunes that surround it.
