Wdzydze (Kashubian Jezoro Wdzydzczé, also known as Polish Kaszubskie Morze or Kash. Kaszëbsczé mòrze; German Wdzydze-See or Wdzidsensee, later Weitsee) is a lake in Poland in the Pomeranian Voivodeship.

The 10.7 km² lake, which is highly branched and rich in islands and peninsulas, is located in the Powiat Kościerski in the Pomeranian part of Kashubian Switzerland, the central region of the Kashubian Lake District. The water level of the lake, which is up to 68 m deep, is 133 m n.p.m.. It is flowed through by the Wda (Black Water), which flows into the Vistula at Świecie (Schwetz).

On its eastern shore, the two villages lie five kilometres apart as the crow flies:

  • Wdzydze Kiszewskie (Kash. Kiszewsczé Wdzëdzé, dt. until 1874 Wdzidzen, later Sand Village), known mainly as a museum village (Kashubian Ethnographic Park), in the rural commune Kościerzyna;
  • Wdzydze Tucholskie (kasch. Tëchòlsczé Wdzëdzé, dt. Wdzydze, since 1875 Weitsee)[1] in the rural commune of Karsin.
