The name "Magic Spring" is a touristic name, it was given to it by tourist because of the Big and small bubbles continuously pop on the surface of this pond which functions as the beginning of a lazy, little stream. Tourists go there to swim and they never touch the surface of the spring even when they try to.
Many oasis springs are now drained by modern equipment; the Magic Spring illustrates exactly the process that has made Dakhla into a green spot with sand dunes on all sides. However, it is now fully prepared to receive tourist even with a nice coffee shop around, and it looks more like a swimming pool of a hotel. The water is supposed to be clean and good to drink. And when go there, make sure you have enough time to spend in the water as you will never want to leave it because of the bubbles and the unrepeated warmness of the water.
