A mysterious lake that appeared suddenly in the Tunisian desert has created an impromptu “beach” in the drought-ridden country.

No explanation has been given for the sudden appearance of ” Gafsa Beach”, which was discovered by shepherds three weeks ago.
There has been no official explanation for the lake’s origins and while some geologists believe seismic activity may have caused groundwater to rise to the surface by disrupting the water table, others disagree.

According to local authorities, the volume of the pool could be one million cubic metres over more than one hectare, with a depth of between 10 and 18 metres.
