Le lac Rose, de son vrai nom lac Retba, est l'un des sites les plus visités de la presqu'île du Cap-Vert au Sénégal.
Ce lac salé doit sa renommée à la teinte originale et changeante de son eau, mais aussi au rallye Paris-Dakar dont il constituait l'ultime étape
Mais malheureusement aprèd 2h de route et un pneu crever le lac était tout bleu donc dsl Cha mais tu vas être obligée de me ramener là-bas!
Lake Retba or Lac Rose lies north of the Cap Vert peninsula of Senegal, north east of Dakar.
It is so named for its pink waters, caused by cyanobacteria in the water. The color is particularly visible during the dry season. The lake is also known for its high salt content, which, like that of the Dead Sea, allows people to float easily. The lake also has a small salt collecting industry and is often the finishing point of the Dakar Rally.
Many salt collectors work 6–7 hours a day in the lake, which has a salt content close to 40%. In order to protect their skin, they rub their skin with "Beurre de Karité" (shea butter, produced from shea nuts obtained from the Shea nut tree), which is an emollient used to avoid tissue damage.
After beeing on the road for 2h when we finnally arrived we had realised that the Lake wasn't Pink as usally because of the rain so it was all Bluuue!
Voici à quoi ressemble en temps normale le Lac Rose There u can see the way it's suppose to look like

Île de Gorée (i.e. "Gorée Island"; (French pronunciation: [ildəɡoʁe]) is one of the 19 communes d'arrondissement (i.e. "commune of arrondissement") of the city of Dakar, Senegal. It is a 0.182 square kilometres (45 acres) island located 2 kilometres (1.1 nmi; 1.2 mi) at sea from the main harbor of Dakar (14°40′0″N 17°24′0″W / 14.666667°N 17.4°W / 14.666667; -17.4).
Its population as of 31 January 2005 official estimates is 1,056 inhabitants, giving a density of 5,802 inh. per km² (15,028 inh. per sq. mile), which is only half the average density of the city of Dakar. Gorée is both the smallest and the least populated of the 19 communes d'arrondissement of Dakar.
Gorée is famous as a destination for people interested in the Atlantic slave trade but relatively few slaves were processed or transported from there. The more important centres for the slave trade from Senegal were north, at Saint-Louis, Senegal or to the south in the Gambia, at the mouths of major rivers for trade
