The most famous place in Portland and one of the legendary beauty spots in the world. A natural favorite for swimmers as the mix of fresh and salt water offers an unusual bathing experience. They say the lagoon is bottomless and that a sort of dragon resides there. But in reality Blue Lagoon is and enchanting spot with deep blue water fed by a fresh water mineral spring.
Made famous by a certain Brooke Shields movie and the site of a well-publicised Jacques Cousteau dive, the 52m-deep (170.6ft) 'Blue Hole' (as locals call it) opens to the sea through a narrow funnel, but is fed by freshwater springs that come in at about 40m (131ft) deep.
Truly on of the most beautiful and enchanting sites in all of Jamaica!
