Dolphin Cove

Exploring the Luminous Lagoon in Montego Bay

While on our Big Guy Big World trip to Jamaica, we had to explore the Luminous Lagoon. I have to say, it was as magical as it sounds. Located in Montego Bay, the Luminous Lagoon is known for being home to millions of dinoflagellates. When it’s dark out, the lagoon glows and sparkles when the…

This incredible scenic drive is a 64.4-mile-long stretch of Hawaiian highway connecting Kahului to Hana, a small town in east Maui. However, the term “highway” is a little misleading.
