The element of romance

The Maldives archipelago is quite the popular choice when it comes to honeymoon getaways. The beaches are simply gorgeous! Vaadhoo Island on the other hand has one of the most intimate night beaches from the cluster –the glowing beach of course!

The magic of nature

The beach in Vaadhoo is most famous at night because of certain organism called phytoplankton. These
microscopic creatures release a bioluminescent glow that makes the beach look as though there are tiny blue stars floating toward the shores.


This paradise island is situated about 8 km (5 miles) away from the main airport in Male. The island can be reached easily by speed boat which takes approximately 15 minutes to get there.

Other information

Accommodation in Vaadhoo include Maldives 5-star hotels, the likes of Adaaran Prestige Vadoo  for instance. There are other beach activities to engage in such as snorkelling and diving, but the main attraction remains the glowing waters at night.
