Pink Lake in Village of Ivanivka

No viruses
Ecofriendly

To swim in the Dead Sea it is not necessary to fly to Israel. Kherson lands will surprise you with pink salt lakes which have become very popular among the tourists from all over the country. One of such locations is the lake in the village of Ivanivka.

Wind and pink lake

Can you imagine a breathtaking picture: a bank of the water body is bright burgundy in some places, the sky-line merges with waters and it seems that the lake is boundless, and instead of sand there are white salt crystals crisping under your feet? It is an ideal place to make a topical photo sessions and calm outdoor recreation.

Why is water pink

Rich pink and burgundy colour the pond gets due to specific unicellular algae Dunaliella Salina. Under the hot sun rays it produces beta-carotene which paints water into bright pink colour. Tourists come to the lake in order to admire landscapes and improve their health. High salt concentration in air and water favourably influences respiratory, digestive and vascular systems.

Hint: come to the lake during the heat wave. Under high temperatures the water actively evaporates and acquires extraordinary bright colours.

There are no amenities: neither shower cubicles nor bandstands to have some rest. If you are going to swim, be sure to take fresh water for washing the salt water off.

Compared to the popular Lemuriiske pink lake in Hryhorivka village there are practically no people. If you would like to tune out from the civilization and enjoy nature beauty, go this way.
