Blue Lagoon, Port Antonio, Jamaica

The Blue Lagoon’s timeless glamour and exceptional setting makes it one of Jamaica’s most prized destinations. The largest of the island’s spring-fed lagoons boasts a depth of nearly 180 feet – some claim it has no bottom – and blends tones of emerald, turquoise and sapphire to create an almost biblical aquatic haven. This famous property landed on the world map in 1980, when Randal Kleiser‘s “Blue Lagoon” starring Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins made its cinematic debut. The Blue Lagoon has continued to attract countless visitors and celebrities over the years from all around the world. Plans for the revival of this landlocked cove include a scenic restaurant and bar, botanical gardens and pier-side craft kiosks, all scheduled to open in 2020.
