Lago Rosa, Dakar

3.3
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.

  • Beautiful! One of the most beautiful places in the world! Again and again gladly, very great also for children to bathe!

  • Even if we didn't get to see the pink lake, we have to go on the one hand because it was the arrival of the mythical Paris-Dakar and on the other hand because it's very beautiful! Quad bike ride in the dunes and canoe on the lake. Just a small downside ... women who sell souvenirs do too much forcing and it's complicated to go out...
