Blue Lagoon – Portland, Jamaica

It’s been a LONG time since I visited the parish of Portland.  It was 2009 to be exact.  As I wrote in my post called “9 Reasons to Love Your Jamaican Butler”, I recently did the extreme 48-hour version of touring a piece of the parish.  One of the excursions I was able to go on during this short time was the gorgeous Blue Lagoon.  This is the second time I’ve see Blue Lagoon in real life and it was a much more intimate experience this time around because I was able to boat in from one of the villas in the San San area.

I’ve done a little bit of reading up on Blue Lagoon and found out that it was originally called “the blue hole”, but because of the popularity of the 1980 Brooke Shields film called Blue Lagoon, the name just stuck.  I think it’s a good thing they stuck with “lagoon” because now there are several “blue holes” all over the island so it’s definitely not an original name anymore.

Below is my video tour of Blue Lagoon.  Pay special attention to the music I used for the video because it was played by Robert Angus, a mesmerizing Jamaican jazz, classical and electric guitarist whom I’ve seen live in Jamaica twice, and whom I will be blogging about shortly.  He is truly gifted!

So here’s my video tour of Blue Lagoon.  Enjoy!
