Unwind in the lush greenery surrounding calm waters at Bab's Dock, a private lake owned by a Belgian couple. Swim, canoe, sail, play volleyball, or just lie in a hammock in this retreat on the the water's edge. A thatched terrace shelters a European-style restaurant with tables and decks made of local wood. Afterwards, take a stroll on the long boardwalk stretching out over the lake's still surface. You need to call in advance so they can send a designated boat for you, taking you from the parking lot to the restaurant through a thick mangrove forest. Plan your visit to Bab's Dock and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Cotonou trip site.
