Blue Lagoon is located in the Port Antonio region of the island and is a wildly popular travel destination for families and honeymooners. With glistening, turquoise blue waters surrounded by lush greenery, Blue Lagoon is a vision of beauty.
When visitors first arrive, they notice that the lagoon looks familiar from the Brooke Shields’ movie, The Blue Lagoon. Interestingly enough, the lagoon was once called “The Blue Hole,” but with the popularity of the movie, the lagoon’s name was permanently changed to “The Blue Lagoon.”
The water is a mix of fresh water and salt water, as the lagoon is open to the sea and fed by freshwater springs. If you decide to take a dip in the lagoon, you’ll notice the alternating temperatures (the warmth of the Caribbean Sea and the icy cold waters of the underground streams), which is quite an experience.
