About Black Lagoon
According to the locals, the colour of the Black Lagoon is caused by the number of “guidos” (a kind of serpent) that live in the lagoon. But don’t be scared! The colour is probably due to the dry leaves that accumulate at the bottom of the lagoon. You can swim here without fear and enjoy the “ichthyotherapy”: the local, tiny fish will nip the dead skin of your feet.
