The beaches are commonly listed among the top beaches in the Caribbean for their azure-colored waters and white sands.
The main reason we decided to visit the island was to visit the Mosquito Bay, the highest concentration of bioluminescent organisms in the world. This night was unlike anything I have ever experienced.

The ferry was late, of course, so we made a mad dash to where we were to meet for the kayaking tour. It was really a miracle we made it at all. "Biolumescent Bay Tour" should be on everyone's Bucket List.
First of all you are kayaking on a huge bay at night. Already cool, by itself. Next, the water begins to illuminate as it is stirred. Unbelievable. Seriously, I was trying to think of how the guides were doing this parlor trick, only it isn't a trick. It's a natural occurance in Mosquito Bay, year-round. They wouldn't allow us to take our cameras with us, but you can check out some pictures of this phenomenon here.
I will probably do another post just on this experience, in order to give you the specifics.
The next day we found this beach by accident and stayed there the rest of the day.
