Experience Jamaica's Luminous Lagoon with Sandals!

Shine bright like a Lagoon?

Relax, this isn't magic. I think. This lagoon in Falmouth, Jamaica isn't your average lagoon: it's a natural wonder found in only the most special places. Its amazing glow is truly unique and something you have to experience. Known for its phenomenon in just four locations globally - The Bahamas, Indonesia, Puerto Rico, and Jamaica - the Luminous Lagoon shines the brightest here. That's why it's an absolute must-visit!

To witness the lagoon's magical glow, you'll need to embark on a night tour when its luminosity is most noticeable. You can choose to observe from a boat or take a dip in the glowing waters. We highly recommend it, as it adds an extra layer of magic to the experience and will make some amazing pictures.

The lagoon's brilliance comes from microscopic organisms that emit light when disturbed. Found in shallow, warm waters, these organisms contribute to the lagoon's unique ambiance. Jamaica's consistently warm climate enables this phenomenon, making it shine and glow even more brilliantly compared to other sites in the world.

You can take a tour of the Luminous Lagoon and it typically involves a boat ride to the glowing show. The prices range from US$25 to US$180 per person depending on the tour type and inclusions. Don’t worry, you will be guided by experts, so you can learn about the lagoon's ecosystem and the bioluminescent organisms that live there. I hope a part of the entry fee is given to the microscopic organisms since they are the ones working hard and putting on a great show!

Taking a dip in the lagoon can amplify the glow, providing a surreal experience. Just so you know, the lagoon's depth ranges from 2 to 8 feet, making it easy to navigate. We recommend wearing water shoes for better footing on its slippery bottom.

Sounds incredible, doesn't it? We were blown away ourselves when we discovered it. Sandals truly offers the best experiences at their destinations! Contact us if you need to know more about this activity and many others. We are here to help you out and lend a hand. Until the next one!
