What to Expect
Sparkling, shimmering, turquoise blue water. Surrounded by wild plants and trees in the most beautiful shades of green. The Blue Lagoon is a fascinating beauty, and it is even famous. The movie “The Blue Lagoon” with Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins was filmed here. It is said that the lagoon used to be called The Blue Hole, but because of the movie's popularity, it was renamed The Blue Lagoon.
The water shimmers magically, and the color changes throughout the day. From turquoise colors, azure to sapphire to royal blue. And not only the color is unique, the temperature changes too. From warm to lukewarm to cool, the lagoon is a mixture of fresh and saltwater. And so, the warmth of the Caribbean Sea mixes with the ice-cold water of the underground streams, which feels fascinating while swimming.
You can also take a relaxing raft ride and learn all kinds of exciting, fun facts: “How many movies have all been shot here. Or which celebrities have already made it out here.” For a long time, the locals believed that the lagoon was bottomless, but in any case, it is incredibly deep – between 183-196 ft (56-60 meters), which contributes to the different shades of blue.
According to legend, a dragon lives in the depths of the lagoon. Just an absolutely magical place. Perfect for enjoying the silence and beauty of Mother Nature and relaxing.

When it rains, nature trips are usually less enjoyable. The lagoon is relatively less suitable for a stroller or wheelchair, as you only have a small view from the shore. The whole experience only comes into its own in or on the water.
