Quite literally heaven on earth come night time, the island of Vaadhoo in the Maldives is home to a rare and natural phenomenon straight out of fantasy land! So, add it on to your bucket list now!
The Glow in the Dark Beach
The stunning beach on the Vaadhoo island is a famed spot for a rare and natural phenomenon – blue neon-lit glowing tides that kiss the sandy shores every night! The remarkable sight is courtesy to the phytoplankton which undergoes a natural chemical reaction called bioluminescence when oxygen mixes with the water.
Other than taking in this stunning sight, there are plenty of other activities to keep you entertained. The island is surrounded by some amazing coral reefs, home to a fantastic array of marine life, so scuba diving is a must. Spending a relaxing day at a spa is also a good option.
Best Time for a Visit
While the Maldives enjoy good weather all year round, the dry season would be considered the best time to for a visit, given the fact that there is very little chance of rain and the seas will be perfectly calm.
Visitors won’t be short of choices when it comes to finding suitable accommodation when staying in the Maldives. 5-star hotels including the likes of Adaaran Prestige Vadoo and a host of other resorts are available to choose from for a satisfying stay.
