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. Transfer time is 20 minutes by seaplane or 120 minutes by speedboat from Malé International Airport (85 kilometers).

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 disrupted by oxygen.
