But when you warmed up enough, check out the Blue Lagoon sauna and steam rooms. There is also an area just for relaxing—the aptly named, Relaxation Area. Have a smoothie at the Lagoon Bar, and if you are looking for warmer waters, then search out the areas of the lagoon with the most steam. After a soak in the warmer waters, get ready for a face mask, perhaps followed by a water massage courtesy of the waterfall. When experiencing all of this relaxation and cozy times, the hunger may come. But no worries, the Blue Lagoon has plenty to offer by purchase, by way of dining, no matter your tastes.
There are two things you should keep in mind before going to the Blue Lagoon. The first one is to don't forget to use the conditioner because your hair might be a little bit dry after you enter the water.

As for your jewelry, best to keep it in your locker, it can be hard to find a fallen earring in the cloudy blue water of the Blue Lagoon.
