Stunning Bioluminescent Waves Light Up Beach in Maldives

Bioluminescent sea creatures produced a spectacular sight for nighttime beachgoers in the Maldives when they lit up a shore in a glowing blue on December 20.

Footage recorded by Ibrahim Shameel shows a person walking through the glowing surf in the dark.

According to Shameel, the video shows a “rare” occurrence of the phenomenon on the island of Maafushi.

The glowing blue is produced by bioluminescent marine creatures such as algae and crustaceans. Credit: Ibrahim Shameel via Storyful
