Lago Rosa, Dakar
Splash into the pinkish water of Lago Rosa, where salt-processing algae create an unusual color rarely seen in natural lakes and rivers. Take a stroll along the lake's white beaches and enjoy a view of sand dunes, which serve as the end point of the famous Paris-Dakar rally. The pink color of the water is especially striking during the dry season, from November to June. Plan my Dakar trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
Lago Rosa Reviews

Malheureusement, nous sommes venus à la mauvaise période. Peu de soleil ce jour là, le lac n'était pas rose du tout. Mais un endroit sympa à faire quand même. Un guide sur place vous prend en charge. ... more »Unfortunately, we came to the wrong time. Little sunshine that day, the Lake was not pink at all. But a nice place to do anyway. An on-site guide takes care of you. Price to negotiate... like everywhere
