The Blue Lagoon, also known as Blue Hole, was renamed after the 1980 film "The Blue Lagoon" with Brooke Shields, which was partially shot in the area. This natural spring fed lagoon in Port Antonio, Portland, Jamaica opens unto the sea through a narrow funnel. This is also the site of a famous Jacques Cousteau dive. Cousteau verified that the lagoon was not “bottomless” and in reality measured over 178 feet (54 meters) deep. The image shows a view of boats in the lagoon from breadfruit trees. Slide labeled Blue lagoon Jamaica.
