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. Conrad Maldives Thank you to Adam Bruzzone of Adam Bruzzone Photography for permission to re-produce the image.

  1. When sands meet sea in the night, amazing foto !!!
    But in Mediterian sea bio-luminescent show only in hot summer nights

  2. 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!
