"Due to its magnesium, soda and clay content, the lake, which is beneficial for the treatment of some skin diseases, is good for the water and it is attracting foreign tourists as well as domestic holidaymakers. Bicycle tours are organized around the lake which provides accommodation for tourists with camping areas and facilities in the vicinity, bird watching and diving opportunities.

The Salda Lake, which is noted for its similarity to Mars rock formations and sand dunes, is regarded as one of the two points of resemblance to the geological structure of Mars on Earth. The lake, which has a round structure, draws attention with seven white candidates that have begun to be seen in the water."
  • There is a 10 lira charge to park by the beach which is fair enough as the place is clean and there are numerous showers to wash the clay off your body. Also changing rooms at the beach plus self service cafes.
