Glistening Waters is a glowing lagoon on the north coast of Jamaica. This marvel is only found in four places in the world – Jamaica, Bahamas, Puerto Rico and Indonesia, however, this lagoon is the brightest of them all due to more consistent climate. Here, the fresh water from the Martha Brae River meets the salt-water ocean and this amazing creation is formed. The water is filled with phosphorous which allows it to illuminate so brilliantly when disturbed. The glow is formed from small microorganisms that emit a flash of light when touched.

The microscopic organisms live and create a natural phenomenon, known as bio luminescence. Jamaica’s luminous lagoon being the brightest of them all amazes scientists and visitors worldwide..
