The lake is located quite a way in the Al Qudra desert and has no paved road, so it may be harder to access without the right vehicle, ideally a 4x4.
Is it man-made?
Dubai's Moon Lake is likely to be man-made just like the nearby popular Love Lakes, also in Al Qudra.
Earlier this year, another gem was uncovered in the UAE on the coast of Ras Al Khaimah: an incredible bright pink lake. The pink lake is suggested to be naturally made, with scientists saying the water discolouration could be due to red algae.
Expat travel blogger Maria snapped a beautiful shot of the pink lakes in early January, inspiring many in the UAE to seek out the place.
That makes for two new, off the beaten path sights in the UAE! We can't wait to see what else might come up next.
