Gökçeada is one of the wetmost islands in the world; There are several large irrigation ponds. The only natural lake is Salt Lake. This is actually a lagoon of wind and waves. For many years, the sand spilgy of wind and waves managed to separate the lake from the sea, but it was unable to completely cut ties. There are no streams that feed the lake, partly rainwater, and mostly salt water from the sea. There’s a thin sand pile between Salt Lake and the sea.
In very dry years, evaporation completely dries and leaves a natural layer of salt on top. The salt obtained here has met Gökçeada’s requirements for centuries. The lake is located in the Aydincik area, formerly kefalos. Its widest point is within a kilometer. Its deepest part is less than a meter.
Although no studies have been done on the benefit, it is always possible to see visitors covered in black mud by the lake. After the dry period, the lake begins to hold water in the autumn, where flamingos stay as long as the lake’s feeding conditions allow.
