With new buildings and attractions popping up in Dubai all the time, the latest attraction to emerge in the emirate is in the desert, inspired by the famous Love Lake.

The new Moon Lake, which is in the shape of a crescent moon, can be found in the middle of the Al Qudra desert the Google Map coordinates of 24.7874218, 55.3065662.

The new lake was first revealed by popular Dubai-based photographer and videographer, Mostafa, who goes by @100.pixels on Instagram.

The photographer referred to it as a “hidden gem” in Dubai, “full of wildlife and barely untouched nature”.

The discovery was made by Mostafa just at the start of Ramadan, and it looks particularly stunning amongst the bright sands of the desert.

However, in order to access the new lake, you’ll need to ensure you have the right vehicle to get you there, namely a 4×4 as there’s no direct road leading to the Moon Lake. We suppose it does add to the adventure aspect of the journey.

Earlier this year, another landmark, also a lake, was uncovered in the UAE.

The unearthing of this unique nature spot – a bright pink lake in Ras Al Khaimah – was by an Emirati student, Ammar Al Farsi who is from Sharjah.

Using a drone, the 19-year-old captured the stunning shots which he shared to social media. The lake is found amongst the Saraya Islands, which are located the emirate of Ras AL Khaimah.

We’re just waiting to see what else will pop up in the UAE this year.
