What Is Bioluminescent?

Amazingly, it is a stunning phenomenon where bioluminescent creatures cause the sea and sand to sparkle at night with an ethereal aqua-coloured light when disturbed by waves or footfalls on the beach.

Mattu Beach, Karnataka

This beach is a hidden haven that shines at night. According to experts, the bioluminescence in this area is produced by a free-living marine creature called sea sparkle.

Bangaram Island, Lakshadweep

The blue light that illuminates Bangaram’s beaches at night is caused by various phytoplankton, algae, and other aquatic life, like jellyfish. It is the least visited islands and is just charming.

Betalbatim Beach, Goa:

The beach is well-known for its immaculate white sand, breathtaking sunsets, and dolphin sightings. The algae that produce this appearance also illuminates the beach's coastline at night.

Thiruvanmiyur Beach, Chennai

The beach has been known for its mesmerising dawn vistas but is now well-known as one of India\'s glow-in-the-dark beaches. The beach has the most beautiful views and is clean.

Havelock Island, Andaman

The light here is caused by a tiny sea creature called phytoplankton. To appreciate the beauty, you can go on a bioluminescent kayaking trip or stroll along the beach on a moon night.
