Vaadhoo island

Vadhoo is one of the inhabited island in Maldives. It’s next to Male and the airport. This group of islands attract people from all over the world to spend some unforgettable time there. There isn’t a perfect time to go to Vadhoo island: the weather in Maldives is good all year around.

There is a beach in Vaadhoo island which is incredible and amazing. It’s famous all over the world for its “sea of stars”, which is a rare natural phenomenon. Every night, this beach shines in the dark because there are some microscopic organisms called plancton which do this. This blue light is a defense mechanism for these marine organisms. John Woodland Hastings, of Harvard University, was the first person who discovered this special plancton. This beach is one of the best places to relax: the species create the most romantic natural lightning in the world. If you want to see this scenary, you have to go in the evening.
