Salt Lake

The Salt Lake at the southeast of Gökçeada in the Aegean Sea, the westernmost part of Turkey, is a treasure of natural beauty and health... The lake, next to Kefalos Beach, was formed in the middle of sand embankments accumulated by the wind. It has an average depth of 1 meter and a width of around 1 km. The lake is formed by seawater as well as rainwater, and is left with its salt-shaped floor after its waters evaporate in the summer. In autumn and winter, it becomes covered with water. This time, the interior of the lake and its surroundings are transformed into a different visual feast with the visit of flamingos. Salt Lake is also the scene of a visit of duck varieties, gulls and many other types of birds.… It is valuable to photography enthusiasts with its increased bird presence in the spring. Walking on the salt-covered floor in summer at the lake is a mystical experience. On the other hand, there is also the health tourism aspect of Salt Lake. There is dense sulfur in the mud layer extracted from the bottom of the lake. According to research, Salt Lake with this feature, especially rheumatism, offers a factor that is good for various health problems. That's why tourists come around the lake and rub mud on their bodies and sunbathe.
