Lighthouse
“Bioluminescence is one of planet Earth’s best-kept secrets. Tiny organisms make the water glow at night. They found the perfect place to live in the Fajardo Bio Bay. Stir the water of the Bioluminescent Bay and lots of sparkles will activate. Glowing trails will swirl and flow with the water. The Fajardo Bio Bay Kayak Tour feels like discovering a whole new world. This bioluminescent bay is part of a nature reserve. The entrance is a beautiful mangrove channel. All along the way you are surrounded by protected life, and at night, the stars fill the sky!”

“Lindquist Beach is located right next to Sapphire. This is a very private beach. It does cost money to enter but has very few people. You can bring the beach chairs provided from the room to the beach to relax. ”

“We recommend going on a true sail with Captain Carl of the Teroro II. (Other outfits in Christiansted say they are on a catamaran, but put too many people on the boat for a good time, and only motor out without sailing). Find Captain Carl online!”
