As soon as your eyes fall on it, you will be charmed by its beauty and the turquoise color of its water. You will feel calm as soon as you get down. It is "Al nayzak lake", which was described as the "hidden paradise on our planet" by the American CNN.

It is just a small lake, covering an area of 3,000 square meters, and its depth ranges between 8 to 10 meters. It is located adjacent to the shore of the Red Sea, and is made up of a unique rock formation. It is located 8 km south of Marsa Allam and the village of "Marsa Shagara" is its nearest distinctive sign, which is 2-4 km from the lake.

With regard to the reason for calling it this name, there are rumors about the fall of a celestial meteor in this spot, which resulted in the digging of the beach in this way, making it more like a lake. It is also said to be the result of natural geological formations. Regardless of the reason for its name, it is one of the most beautiful places that tourists flock to from all over the world.

Besides the calm and relaxation that you will feel as soon as you descend in it, you will also find fun by diving inside it and watching the wonderful coral reefs as it's a natural tidal heated pool, as its waters come from sea currents, making it a safe snorkeling spot.
