The Blue Lagoon

Around the headland from Porthgain, at Abereiddy, is a breached quarry in which a lagoon has formed.  The surrounding slate gives the water a rich blue/green colour  –  hence its name, the Blue Lagoon.

Despite the numerous Danger warnings, intrepid teenagers are prepared to risk life and limb as they jump and dive from the remains of the disused quarry structures into the deep waters.

 

 

The Lagoon is also popular with coasteering groups.  Coasteering involves traversing a rocky coast using a mixture of rock climbing, cliff jumping, swimming, scrambling and any other means of movement but without the aid of ropes.  In the picture below a group are just setting out under the guidance of an experienced leader.
