The Vadhoo Island is a spectacular island in Maldives which is famous for its bioluminescent phenomenon known as the Sea of Stars. It is located in the Raa Atoll. The Sea of Stars phenomenon is the name given to the mesmerising waters of Vaadhoo Island when they glow a brilliant blue under the moonlight. The sea is said to glitter and glows in such a manner that it reflects the stars beneath which the waves lap. This phenomenon occurs due to the various phytoplankton that can be found in the sea and glow under the cover of the night. The best time to see the Sea of Stars at Vadhoo Island is June and October. You can also swim in the glowing water.
Vadhoo Island is also home to some of the most exotic resorts in the Maldives which provide luxury amenities and villas that seem to have propped up right out of a picture. Aside from this, although the population of Vaadhoo is not much, it is a great place to learn the Maldivian and subsequently island culture that prevails.
