Lake Salda, often advertised as the Turkish Maldives, is absolutely spectacular. Find out what to expect & where to find the quiet spots at Salda Gölü.
Turkey’s lavender fields: lake district meets Provence
Have you seen them? The photos of Lake Salda with ‘Turkish Maldives’ as a caption? You may have thought the #nofilter was totally out of place when staring those over the top whites and blues in the face. But the truth is that the colors of Salda Gölu (Turkish for Lake Salda) genuinely are over the top compared to what you would typically see at the beach. Imagine that, Turkey, land of turquoise, has a lake with a color that is so electric blue and sand so white, that people started calling it the Turkish Maldives.
And, is it like the Maldives? Well… no. But we think that that’s a good thing. After all, you’re in Turkey. And despite its Maldive-like whites and blues, Lake Salda is very much set in Turkey, pine tree forest-backdrops and shepherds and goats included.
If you want to visit Salda Gölü, keep reading, as we will tell you exactly what to expect, when is the best time to visit, how to get there, and where to find the quiet spots.
