4.8/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web
Blue Lake is a karst lake located near Imotski in southern Croatia. Like the nearby Red Lake, it lies in a deep sinkhole possibly formed by the collapse of an enormous underground cave. The total depth from the upper rim is around 220 meters, while water depth varies with season. In spring, when the snow from surrounding mountains melts, it can reach 90 m, and in 1914 it reached 114 m, overflowing the southern rim. The lake is a popular destination for hiking and sight-seeing.Maximum dimensions of the lake are around 800×500 m, but they significantly vary due to big changes in the water level. At the end of the summer the lake may completely disappear.In 1907 a road was built descending to the lake. In 1942, an earthquake caused a large landfall resulting in reduction of the lake's depth.

  • The Lake dries up during the summer. As a result, there is very little water. This allows to descend down into the abyss. We prefer good shoes for the expedition. Down, there are stairs and paths in rather wide rubble that deteriorate as the descent. The climb is sports. You can get down with the kids. On the other hand, it is not possible to get off with strollers, Chair, or other vehicles. To make the set, count 1 h 30. It's pretty. The water is very clean, a swim must be nice in the summer. Attentions, provide shoes to enter the water, there is that of the stone.
