Sea of Stars Vaadhoo Island Guide
The Maldives is famous for its remarkable beach locations, world-class seaside resorts, and far better scenery than photos. But something mysterious, extraordinary and very romantic happens on these islands of the Indian Ocean: the sparkling and zealous sea of stars.
People call it paradise on earth if you don’t believe, come at night, you will be surprised to see the Bioluminescent beach at Vaadhoo Island known as Sea Of Stars, sparkling blue waves rolling on the sandy beach, looks like something out of an imaginary world.
Where is Sea Of Stars on Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives?
Vaadhoo is one of the islands of Raa Atoll, Maldives, located on the equator in southwestern Sri Lanka, in the Indian Ocean. It is a small island with not more than 500 inhabitants. This amazing Island is on a 15-minute speedboat ride
Why Does Maldives Beach Glow At Night?
As soon as the waves break on the beach or just the feet get into the wet sand, a blue-green glow appears. This surprising effect is due to bioluminescent plankton, often seen in warm coastal waters. It is a normal chemical reaction called bioluminescence that occurs when water is disturbed by oxygen. Phytoplankton, the harmful bacterium of the ocean in water, has a blue luminescence that occurs when they produce toxins that are not safe for fish, humans and other living creatures. Although they are attractive and magical, they are not very friendly.
The blue glow of Phytoplankton is like a defense mechanism that prevents other marine organisms from eating it.
Why is Vaadhoo beach one of the hottest tourists attraction in the world?
One of the main reason is glowing water that attracts the tourists from all over the world and makes the Sea of Stars Vaadhoo Island one of the best tourist destination in the world. Those who visit the island said that they are lucky to see the blue globe from July to February. Especially during a new moon from the darkness of the sky helps to increase the light.
