Mysterious Bioluminescent Beach Is Waiting For You

Tags,

As for the hot summer, going to the beach is a nice choice. You may know that there are various beaches all over the world, but have you seen bioluminescent beaches? Under the starry sky, waves are breaking on the beach. The water is sparkling with blue or green lights, which is brighter and more charming than stars. However, it is not easy for us to appreciate bioluminescent beaches and enjoy ourselves.

How is the bioluminescent beach formed?

In bodies of water around the world, bioluminescent creatures, typically plankton, can produce an electric glow when they move, lighting up like a firefly. Then, in the dark night, you can see the magic of nature— a fluorescent beach. It appears at different times and with different brightness.

Famous Bioluminescent Beaches for You to Choose 

Perhaps the most famous of the glowing bays is Mosquito Bay on Puerto Rico’s island of Vieques, a popular tourist destination. In addition, Sam Mun Tsai beach in Hong Kong, Manasquan in New Jersey, Mission Bay in San Diego and Halong Bay in Vietnam are all superior places for you to choose. If you are lucky enough, you can come across glowing blue waves at night.

Since the bioluminescent beach appears only at night and not so often, you are supposed to make enough preparation to welcome its advent. Choose an appropriate time and a right beach. Moreover, before leaving for the beach, you should carry with a lot of things, like first aid medicines, lighting equipment and so on. But here I just want to talk about three things we need to take in order to better enjoy a pretty glowing beach.

1.A Tent Is Necessary

First, a stable and sturdy camping tent is really necessary. On the beach, night is not friendly to people. There is always moist breeze, sometimes strong, not good for your sleeping. Thus you need a place to shelter yourself from rain and wind. The tent with good ventilation, which is water-resistant and windproof, can protect you from moist wind and wet environment. In addition, if you don’t meet the fluorescent beach at first night, you may have to stay several days for this special beauty. In such case, tent is more important.

2.Picnic Table and Bench Set Is Also Functional

With a portable picnic table and bench set, you can snack while watching the attractive scenery, greatly relaxing your bodies. If tired, just sit down and cheat with each other in the soft wind. It allows you to be close to nature when you are resting. Imagine such a picture: you are lying on the bench, feeling the magnificent starry sky, gentle sea breeze and the most wonderful thing— glowing beach.

3.A Sleeping Bag Is Better For You

Maybe you also want a sleeping bag. Combined with the function of moisture-proof pad and quilt, a practical sleeping bag can keep you warm and dry, ensuring a sweat dream for you. It is aimed to guarantee good rest after exhausting outdoor activities. You don’t need to worry that damp and cold will disturb your good night’s sleep. So remember to take a high-quality sleeping bag with you before going to the desirable beach.
