Lac rose, or Lake Retba, is located 30 km north-east of Dakar, a few hundred meters from the ocean. Surrounded by dunes and filaos, it’s a shallow lagoon whose pink color, sometimes tending towards violet, is due to the micro-organisms that inhabit its bottom, as well as to the position of the sun.
Salt is collected here, and pyramids are made of it, and this dish-white contrasts superbly with the pink of the lake and the blue of the sky, reviving the impression of being photographed in a fake postcard…
Nb: Due to the heavy rains of last season, the lake has changed color.
