Then get on 4 X 4 pick up for a tour around the lake sand dunes following the last tour of the former rally Paris-Dakar. The lake was born from a lagoon, now closed by a movement of dunes along the sea in the fifteenth century. Located few hundred yards from the ocean amidst a landscape of dunes and small trees, this lake is quite exceptional as it gets its pinkish coloration when the sun is straight, and at dusk we can see tints of purple or violet. The pink color of the lake is explained also by the presence of some algae in the water. Besides its strange color, the large salinity (380 g/liter) placed it second after the Dead Sea.
