Also known as the Pink Lake this shallow, salty lake is one of Senegal’s most popular tourist destinations. On sunny days, the water appears bright pink, owing to the water’s high salt content. Tourists are welcome to swim in the lake’s warm waters or watch the local traders scrape salt from the lake’s bottom by hand. Some inns offer horseback riding in the area.
