Dojran Lake ( ; ) is a lake with an area of 43.1 km2 shared between the Republic of Macedonia (27.3 km2) and West Macedonia within Greek Macedonia, Greece (15.8 km2). To the west is the city of Nov Dojran (Нов Дојран), to the east the village of Mouries, to the north the mountain Belasica/Beles and to the south the Greek town of Doirani. The lake has a rounded shape, a maximum depth of 10 m and a north-to-south length of 8.9 km and is 7.1 km at its widest, making it the third largest lake partially in the Republic of Macedonia after Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa.

The lake was on the southern line of the Macedonian front during World War I, and its southern shore became the site of the Battle of Doiran between allied Greek and British troops attacking from the south, and Bulgarian troops entrenched to the east of the lake. A monument to the battle and two cemeteries for Greek and British troops stand on a hill a few hundred meters south of the lake.
