Due to its protected location, Blue Lagoon offers easy and relaxing diving for both novice and experienced divers and it is also good for snorkeling. The reef and the coral growth at this site may seem rather unremarkable, however, Blue Lagoon can offer divers a number of interesting surprises. The marine life in surrounding waters is amazing, and often divers can spot a squid, octopus, crabs, eels, sea snakes and many exotic fish species. This is also a site for sharks, including white and black tip sharks and rare cat sharks. Blue Lagoon is a great location for night dives as well.
