Day Trips in DakarEdit This
Several half-day and day trips can be taken from Dakar. To the west visit Cape Almadies the westernmost point of mainland Africa and home to lobster reserves and an old fort. To the east of Dakar is Cayar a very nice fishing village. Stop in Rufisque en route and watch the return of the fishermen from the sea with their catch. Continuing east stop at the Benedictine monastery in Keur Moussa. Visitors are welcome to attend its exotic African-style masses. Pink Lake or Lac Retba is an inland salt lake. Its pinkish hue is due to bacteria in the water.
