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 seems to have a bit of magic to it, as the color changes throughout the day, depending upon the way the sun shines upon the surface. When you first arrive, the water can look turquoise but you may notice that during your boat ride, the water changes to a deeper sapphire or even royal blue.

If you’ve chosen a great tour guide, he or she will talk about the history of the lagoon, the appearances of the lagoon in movies and the celebrities who have visited.

Locals used to believe that the lagoon was bottomless, but it has since been discovered that the depth is somewhere around 180 to 200 feet.

The lagoon is also part of a legend that claims a dragon resides there.  Rest assured, no giant winged beast will harass you as you enjoy your time here!

The water in Blue Lagoon 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.
