2. Glow-in-the-dark Beach: Vaadhoo Island, Maldives
Also known as “the sea of stars”, the glow-in-the dark beach pictures you might have seen of Vaadhoo Island, Maldives, is not a product of Photoshop. This magical effect is caused by the bioluminescent plankton in the water, which actually occurs as a defence mechanism to ward off other marine organisms from eating them.
As the waves come into shore, it looks like the stars are riding the waves and scattering on the beach. If you are planning a trip to the Maldives, don’t miss this magical, fantastical sight on the beach!
