The Blue Lagoon, a tropical oasis
With her emerald green and turquoise, crystal waters of the Blue Lagoon, one of the most beautiful places in Jamaica. This paradisiacal place attracts many tourists every year from around the world. And blame them!
The land of forest and water
The island of Jamaica is located in Central America and was originally inhabited by the Arawak Indians, who called the island Xaymaca. In the ancient Indian language means “land of wood and water ‘. Obviously, because Jamaica is in possession of many beautiful forests, more than 120 rivers and stunning coral beaches.
Hollywood in Jamaica
The Blue Lagoon has become world famous when in 1980 the same American movie came out, starring Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins. Much of this film was incorporated at the Blue Lagoon. Later I saw the Blue Lagoon is back in another American movie, Club Paradise with Robin Williams.
Paradise on Earth
For example, the Blue Lagoon (or the Blue Hole, as the locals describe the lagoon) rightly called. This beautiful lagoon is formed by underground minerals that are fed by the Blue Mountains: a mountain whose summit, the Blue Mountain Peak, with 2256 meters the highest point in Jamaica’s. The lagoon is through a narrow passage connected to the Caribbean Sea. You can find the Blue Lagoon near Port Antonio, a port on the north coast of Jamaica.
The water of the Blue Lagoon is an ideal place for photographers, nature lovers and anyone who loves diving, snorkeling, fishing and swimming. The water feels wonderful because of the alternation between a cold and warm currents.
The Blue Lagoon is known for its deep blue and green colors the water, and that change when the sun shines. The reason the colors are so intense, has to do with the depth of the lagoon. It is sometimes said that the lagoon is bottomless. The French researcher Jacques Cousteau, who tried to protect the bottom of the lagoon to reach but the end is stopped, however, says that there is a bottom. Measurements have also shown that the lagoon 56 meters deep.
Although there is doubt about the depth, one thing is for sure: a trip to Port Antonio is complete without a visit to the Blue Lagoon!
