One of the most surreal natural phenomena, bioluminescence makes you feel you’re in your most beautiful dream with the only difference in you being awake and remembering to share your experience with others. Imagine a night sky – dark and silent. Now imagine the stars and the lustrous clusters of stars not in the sky but under your feet in water. What looks like a visual straight out of Pandora, the phenomena turns the ocean water by the shores blue and glowy. It’s not CGI or artificial lighting but purely nature teasing you with its possibilities. Caused due to phytoplankton in the water, the phenomenon is truly one-of-a-kind!
Location: Havelock Islands
For: Family, Kids, couples and groups of friends.
Why you should do it: Simply because this is a rare phenomenon and happens in a very few places on earth! Water turning blue and glowing is something you’ll only read in fantasy novels and if you want to watch it unfold live in front of your eyes, you cannot afford to miss the chance.
Tips: This is visible only during no-moon nights and tours can be arranged by local tour operators. Locals will be able to guide you better on when and where of the phenomenon.
