Lac Rose is one of the tourist attraction locations near Dakar. It is a small lake, approx. 45 mins of drive from Dakar, also known as the termination point of Paris-Dakar ralli. Due to high salt content, colour of the lake water seems as pink during sunny season. You may observe the locals extracting salt in the lake, and handling it. There are many small shops and individuals around selling African hand crafts. One of the best options one can enjoy at Lac Rose is to hire an ATV and have your own offroad driving experience in the sandy hub between the ocean and the lake. People are very friendly but in the mean time they are persistant to a harrassing level for selling goods.
