Sea of Stars on the island Vaadhoo is in the Maldives. It is one of the inhabited islands of Raa Atoll. In addition to extensive coastal beauty, this place is special for the show that offers night. Dots of light appear in the sea to reflect the millions of stars that arise in the sky.
It may appear normal during the day but at night, this beach comes alive. The sheen on the water comes from marine microbes called phytoplankton. The galaxy is drawn in the sand is awesome.
Biological light occurs when a microorganism called phytoplankton in the water is disturbed by oxygen. So the waves lit blue cover the entire Bay Vaadhoo with amazing results.
This phenomenon occurs in hundreds of places in the Pacific and the Atlantic, but the show is unmatched Vaadhoo, which is considered one of the most beautiful, beautiful and magical places on the planet.
In these photographs a natural chemical reaction called bioluminescence, which occurs when a microorganism in the water is disturbed by the movement of the wave, or for example, capture a surfer. The light from bioluminescent phytoplankton looks like a fantastic starry sky somewhere deep in the universe.
To move in the Maldives, the means of transport depends on the distance between Malé and the island of choice, the transfer will take place in one or another means of transport. Among Male Vaadhoo and there are about 180 km.
The means of transport are:
Dhoni: Typical Maldivian boat is the means of transport chosen by the hotels located in Male or at the nearest islands. Transportation is usually free or at a very reduced price.
Fast Barca: The resorts located near Malé but not enough to go on Dhoni made transfers in motorboats. The price of a round-trip transfer fast boat between 90 and 180 U.S. dollars.
Seaplane: Seaplane transport is chosen by the hotels situated on the islands of the distant atolls. The Shuttle speed boat would be too long and moved. The cost of the transfer roundtrip seaplane between 250 and $ 500 per person, depending on the flight time.
If given a choice between hotel boat or seaplane, not only the value is what matters. The pleasure of seeing the atolls at low altitude is the best way to start the trip.
In the movie Life of Pi shown this event, one of the most memorable scenes.
The Maldives lies in two rows of atolls in the Indian Ocean just in ecuador planet. The country is made up of 1,190 coral islands formed around 26 natural ring-shaped atolls, spread over 90,000 square kilometers. These atolls structures are formed upon a sharp ridge rising from the ocean, creating the characteristic single isolation of the place.
Each atoll of the Maldives consists of a coral reef surrounding a lagoon, with deep channels dividing the reef ring. A row of islands is between this atoll ring; each island has its own reef encircling the island lagoon. The reefs of the islands, with countless types of marine life and vibrant corals, protect the islands from wind and waves of the vast ocean around. This unique structure of reefs and channels makes navigation almost impossible for next step without sufficient information on its waters. Ninety- nine percent of the Maldives include sea. The islanders live scattered atolls, in some 200 islands are inhabited. About 90 islands are developed as tourist resorts and the rest are uninhabited or used for agriculture or other forms of support.
