South of semi-arid farmland in the Lajas Valley, the fishing village of "La Parguera" has developed into a popular resort area frequented by local tourism, while maintaining much of its small town atmosphere. Guesthouses and inns, seafood restaurants, water sports, boating centers and small shops fan out from the small plaza.
 
In the evening, boats leave regularly for nearby Phosphorescent Bay, where millions of luminescent dinoflagellates light up when disturbed by movement; moonless nights are best. You can get a boat tour past the beautiful mangrove cays and islets- and swimmers can enjoy Playita Rosada (Rosada Beach) or Mata de la Gata Cay. Snorkelers and scuba divers explore nearby reefs and spectacular outer shelf walls that lie up to seven miles offshore. 
 
The small coastal village of La Parguera (This is the town I live in) is a popular tourist destination to see the famous Bahía Fosforescente (Phosphorescent Bay) and its keys.
