⭐⭐ Not red at all. ⭐⭐
Don’t you just hate it when the names are misleading?
They call this lake in Imotski „Red Lake”. It’s only because of the colour of the cliffs…and as a contrast to the nearby Blue Lake (that is actually blue, according to online reviews). I would expect the water to be red, hopefully radioactive, filled with blood, or whatever it takes to make the water red!
What a bad practice to use traditional naming for natural phenomena! Doesn’t anyone bother to rethink such names to meet the expectations of visitors!? This deserves no more than two stars on Google Places. A big thanks to everyone who sorted this out on Google, Tripadvisor etc, and made it clear to the unsuspecting tourists that the lake is not red!
Do yourself a favour and don’t even bother to check out yet another sinkhole. If you check out other sh**ty reviews, you will know what I mean: the rocks are too tall and steep which makes it impossible to reach the water. All you can do is enjoy the view. Really? Give us one good reason to do that. Half of Croatia lies on karst anyway, so what’s the point of looking at another karst phenomenon? More importantly, what’s the point of just looking at one of the deepest lakes in Europe (if not the deepest one)? Croatia, you disappoint once more.
