Photograph of the week: Beaches aglow in the Maldives

Beaches at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island glow blue at night with bio-luminescent phytoplankton. The glow is activated by movement and here the lapping of the waves on the shore reveals them as a beautiful glowing line. Bio-luminescence is seen around the Maldives from September to December.

    Woah, thats beautiful! Do you know if it can be picked up and put into a potion bottle? That would sell. ;)

    Saw this spectacular sight a lot sailing around in the Whitsunday Islands (Australia); it didn’t seem to matter if it was in the winter or summer months. Particularly stunning when you’re in a dinghy with a 3HP motor whizzing in the water at night, leaving a path of Bio-luminescence light in your wake!
