I figured this place would be so popular for a lot of people. It was recommended by my guide. Eh! What a waste of time. Tons of people, so crowded, nothing exciting. Yes, the water is blue with fish. I say, not worth the time to visit when in LP.

It is a great place to enjoy your weekend with friends and family. There are very good restaurants here. If you come during lunch time, it can give a good time to enjoy lunch after the cool water.

After reading the reviews here we decided that the cave would be too much for us as one of us has an injury that makes stairs and slopes difficult. We read the cave and steps got very slippery. We went to blue lagoon 2 for a swim. It was a little difficult for my friend to get in. We found a spot by the bridge where she could climb down holding the bridge. The water isn’t very deep there. Maybe 3 feet but we were happy floating around. I had already managed to get in and swim in the deeper areas. Most of the rocks are quite slippery. I wish I had brought my water shoes. It is so beautiful when you are there looking up at the mountains

30 minutes cycle ride from town. Best place to chill in blue waters. Have fun . Caves nearby a bonus. Do visit. I shall again

Well done Judocarli! That’s the way to raise intrepid kids! We followed your advice and hired the head torches from the stall at the foot of the steep scramble “path” to the cave entrance. Very glad we had them. Otherwise pitch black beyond the first huge chamber and the picturesque Buddhist shrine. Phone torches completely inadequate. Like you we followed the sometimes difficult to find arrows to the far end of the mind-bogglingly huge cave (at least twice the volume of St Paul’s Cathedral in London). We too had a bit of a melt-down when we couldn’t find the next one on the return route. Unlike your wife, we still couldn’t find it after a few minutes searching, but luckily we managed to improvise and find an eventual link to the entry route. More arrows would have been welcome. Other caves have better formations, but this one is mightily impressive simply on account of its huge scale. Blue Lagoon 1 was busy, commercialised, and great fun. Lots of people, but still plenty of room for a refreshing swim.

Not spectacular as to the cave. The cavern and lagoon complex made my visit interesting. There were several people here, including a family with children.

Felt a great sense of achievement making it through the whole cave and we really felt like we had it all to ourselves. We all hired flashlights which was a must. It’s not an easy path for three small kids 4, 5 & 7 and definitely some slippery spots and potential steep falls, but they made it to the end with no mishaps and only one small meltdown when mum went off searching for the next arrow we couldn’t find :)
Blue lagoon was quite full the day we were there (pimai) and mostly loaded up with people in life vests. We thought it was quite cold (and the kids weren’t a fan of the fish) so the kids just loaded up their water pistols and shot bystanders. Good fun, but we went back to the hotel for a swim in the warmer waters.

Four of us started ... only two of us made it to the end !

The cave entrance is up a fairly steep path ... and once you get inside it's seriously slippy - flip flops probably aren't a good idea !

Once you get deeper inside it gets seriously dark ... a little torch probably isn't a good idea (hire one at the start of the path to the cave entrance).

The cave itself isn't that big, or that stunning - but it's great to be able to wander around on your own.

Afterwards we had a nice soak in the pools, and enjoyed watching the crazy diving antics!
