I have travelled a lot in my lifetime and it takes quite a lot to impress me. When I arrived at the Blue Lagoon I have to admit that I WAS IMPRESSED!

BLUE LAGOON is a Geothermal Spa and one of Iceland's most unique and popular attraction. There is so much to chose from (constrained obviously by the amount of things one could do at a spa) the main attraction is bathing and relaxing in BLUE LAGOON geothermal seawater, known for its positive effects on the skin. A day at a spa soaked away all my aches and pains. It is beautiful. You sit in turquoise blue water surrounded by black volcanic rock. This is all in open air.

If you explore the place, you'll find a waterfall, which provides an energizing massage. There are also steam bath with white walls that resemble white silica mud. Sauna and a refreshing cold water sprinkle

The geothermal spa's state-of-the-art facilities include: a restaurant overlooking the Blue Lagoon. A geothermal beach, lava caves and silica mud are parts of the lagoon area. In addition to bathing in the lagoon, guests enjoy relaxing in a lava cave and a unique geothermal steam bath.

I have to say that I am pretty sold on the whole experience. I have very sensitive skin that can't stand tap water (I wash with filtered, boiled water- yes it is that bad)The Blue Lagoon's warm water and natural active ingredients: salts, silica and blue green algae was super. Initially it felt tingly but then it helped me relax and it didn't cause an allergic reaction. The white Silica mud (which can be bought from the shop) cleanses and exfoliates the skin and has revitalizing effects on the skin while the blue green algae nourishes and softens the skin. For the price of entrance, this is superb.

Getting there is a slight problem but if you go on to the Blue Lagoon website they offer spa packages which are probably the best value for money. Otherwise local travel agents can easily hook you up with transport (I went on a tour bus)

If you happen to be in Iceland, GO!!! You'll leave feeling great and there is also a shop for you to buy their natural products to take home (if not more are available at the airport though not at a cheaper price)

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment The Blue Lagoon [DVD] [1980]

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment The Blue Lagoon [DVD] [1980]

In 1980, Randal Kleiser's remake of The Blue Lagoon had its critics well and truly ... more

divided. On the one hand adolescent nudity,
however tasteful, was enough to give the censors
the vapours. On the other, the story--essentially
a reworking of Robinson Crusoe based on
Stacpoole's Edwardian adventure novel with two
young children as the castaways growing up on a
desert island--seemed just too removed from
reality. Kleiser set out to make "the ultimate
South Seas film", and indeed the location shooting
is a richly beautiful complement to the intimate
tale of two young people coming to terms with
their own adulthood. He teases out touching
performances from Brooke Shields (Emmeline) and
Christopher Atkins (Richard) as the marooned pair,
and a nicely ambivalent cameo from Leo McKern as
Paddy, the ship's cook who gets them set up on the
island before rum gets the better of him.  A
stilted script helps none of them. But the moments
of awkward self-discovery and dawning sexuality
are handled with a tenderness which ultimately
triumphs over some of the more implausible
elements: Shields' perpetually manicured nails,
for example, or the fact that she unexpectedly
gives birth without breaking sweat. To say nothing
of the pair's extraordinary home-building skills,
which would have been beyond the remit of the
average Edwardian governess to teach. Today, for
all its efforts to be taken seriously as a tale of
preserved innocence and discovery, it succeeds
best as a good old-fashioned adventure. On the
DVD: This widescreen presentation positively
bulges with extras. A choice of director's
commentaries means that you can hear Randal Kaiser
(who had previously directed Grease) reminiscing
in fine detail with writer Douglas Day Stewart,
and both Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins.
Some might think this overkill for a non-landmark
film, but the discussions are genuinely
interesting. The film was clearly a formative
experience in Shields' adolescent career --she has
also provided an album of personal snapshots as
another extra--and it is fascinating to hear her
talk about it from her current position as a star
of sophisticated television sitcom. The
crystal-clear digital remastering and anamorphic
stereo picture and sound quality of the main film
don't extend to this scratchy, sometimes inaudible
documentary. --Piers Ford
