Another beauty of nature i would love to experience myself :)

If you thought the ocean could not possibly get any more beautiful, go in the right season and wait until night fall as the water comes to life and sparkles; showcasing one of the rarest natural spectacles on the planet. 

Be amazed by the surreal glowing blue waters - caused by a natural chemical reaction knows as bioluminescence where microorganisms in the water are disturbed by oxygen. The result is a glittering and sparkling sea water, known as the sea of stars. As the waves crash on the beach, the water glows in the dark and acts like a mirror that reflects the sparkling stars above.

You can witness this beautiful phenomenon at many places around the globe :) Example:  at Vaadhoo Island, Raa Atoll, Maldives, but also in Japan, Australia and many other places
