Lake Retba (Lac Rose)

11 reviews of Lake Retba (Lac Rose)

Very high temperature

Lake Retba is located about 40 kilometres from Dakar. We arrived after many hours in planes and waiting in airports. It was very hot, and we had been eating at a nearby camp. I could not miss the chance to get in the water up to my knees and test its high salinity. Though I only got wet to the knees, I was surprised by the very high temperature of the water and how irritating the salt was on my skin. Definitely an experience. Local people boat to the centre of the lake (they protect their skin with a special ointment) and then take the salt to sell.
