The lake has two islands, one of which is not a full island and is linked by sand to the land.
Boat trips at Bafa LakeThere are boat tours available that will take passengers to the islands and to the ancient city of Herakleia stopping for swimming breaks along the way and it is possible to privately hire these boats. The lake islands once housed churches and monasteries, the oldest of which is Yediler Manasiri (the Seven Monastery) and along the banks of the lake there are many restaurants available.
