Why do Maldives beaches glow at night?
The reason behind this glowing beach in the Maldives is because of the sea planktons present in it. These are considered to be the major responsible creatures for this bioluminescent phenomenon. The creatures emit light which is only seen in the dark at the night time.
Can you swim in bioluminescence?
It is amazing to see bioluminescence, and this bay is one place where it can reliably be witnessed if the moon is dark. However, part of what made it so remarkable was to be able to swim in the bay … the organisms glow when disturbed … but swimming is now prohibited in order to protect the bay.
