Take a camera for sunset pics

It was like nothing i have ever seen, the sunset was great, the waters where spectacular to see and swim in, you can see the blue lights when a fish swims by

Great great trip out at night especially. You go out on a boat and when you jump into the water in the dark you're whole body glistens!! Still don't understand it but would do it again to find out

We came here to do the boat trip but the resteraunt was first class. Food was perfect we all had something different and it was all good. I would recommend the seafood. Staff were really friendly and accommodating organising tickets for our trip. I would thoroughly recommend a visit .

Amazing sight in a calm and beautiful setting. You really have to see this to believe it. Our hotel (Royalton White Sands) was only 10 mins away so a must short early evening trip if you are staying here.

The dinner was for my husband's birthday however we were a bit disappointed in the variety of food options that were available from the menu. The fish meal ordered was not the size we expected - the fish was smaller than the size the waiter told us.

Some of the reviews that I read about Glistening Waters may be true. I guess that it depends on the time that you go. The water does glow to a certain extent and it is a fun experience. The water isn't deep but the sand at the bottom is really soft and you can get the sensation that you're sinking.... More

Visited glistening waters with my two teenage boys during our recent trip to Negril. Quite a drive from Negril but totally worth it! Definitely experience this if you are in Jamaica. Do wear water shoes if you go as the bottom is quite mushy.

It was interesting to see the light is the water, but it was not what I expected. The water was very murky and I think if I saw it in the day time I would not go in. Something interesting to do, but would not do it again.

The Luminous Lagoon tour was one the best parts of our visit. I'd never seen anything like this. The tour guides were fun, and while over priced, the memory stick with photos was a great souvenir.
