Salda Lake is a slightly salty karstic lake surrounded by forest-covered hills, rocky lands and small alluvial plains in the Yeşilova district of Burdur, 4 km from the district center. It has a closed basin structure with no outflow in the Lakes Region. Its area is about 44 square kilometers. It is Turkey's 3rd deepest lake with a depth of up to 184 meters. The hydromagnesite mineral formed in the lake is one of the most beautiful and contemporary examples of "biological mineralization".

Salda lake was determined and declared as a Special Environmental Protection Area with the President's Decision dated 14.03.2019 and numbered 824, and it was published in the Official Gazette dated 15.03.2019 and numbered 30715.

In addition to the beautiful scenery created by the cleanliness of the sleep and its turquoise color, the small beaches on the southwest and southeast coasts allow the area to be used for recreational purposes. Salda Lake is located approximately 60 km west of Burdur province. It is known as the deepest, cleanest and clearest lake in Turkey. Its height above sea level is 1140 m. The presence of magnesium, soda and clay in the composition of the lake water causes beneficial results in the treatment of some skin diseases. According to research by experts, lake water is good for acne. The forest cover at the back of the lake is home to partridges, rabbits, foxes, wild boars and the lake is home to wild ducks. There are seven white islands that begin to be seen with the receding waters in the lake.
