If you want to see an elephant swim then you must come to the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal, India. #Andamans #India
I love elephants. To swim with elephants? Put Andaman and Nicobar islands, India at the top of my Bucket List.
ahhhh what?!!?! two of my favorite things!!!!! Swimming Elephants at the Andaman Islands - India
Rajen, the swimming elephant at Havelock. The Indian elephant - also known as the Asian elephant, Asiatic elephant, or Elephas maximus indicus - is the largest mammal native to the Indian subcontinent. Elephant being wide ranging animal requires large areas. As per mythology, elephant took birth from celestial waters and thus are closely associated with rains / water because of the belief. In Kerala, elephants are part of the temple festivals.
NO WAY!!!!! Swimming with elephants in the Andaman Islands!!!!! Totally on my bucket list!!!
Swimming Elephants at the Andaman Islands - India oh my gosh haha that's scary but why not!

Sea of Stars, Vaadhoo Island – Maldives During daylight, it looks like any other beach, but once the sun goes down this place comes to life! It turns into a spectacular sight at night. The bioluminescent phytoplankton look like hundreds of bright stars glistening like a starry sky as the night grows old.

A Maldives Beach Awash in Bioluminescent Phytoplankton Looks Like an Ocean of Stars nature Maldives light beach (Whichever beach we can get to to experience this)
If ever you doubt the sheer awesomeness of mother nature and the magic of our seas then take a look at this. The surreal appearance of the Maldives beach was actually down to a massive tide of bioluminescent phytoplankton called Lingulodinium polyedrum however the tiny organisms emit light when stressed, be it by the lapping of waves, the carving action of a surf board or other, creating what looks like a network of stars.
A Maldives Beach is awash in bioluminescent Phytoplankton, resembling a sea of stars.

IT DOESN'T get much better than this. It's a moonless night and you are on a deserted beach in the Maldives. As the waves lap the shore, the beach lights up like Las Vegas. Glowing organisms stick to your feet. It is one of the most magical sights in the natural world: a bloom of bio-luminescent plankton.

Sea of Stars - Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives. I've tried to research this a little and I think the name Sea of Stars may refer to this photo rather than the place, so I'm not sure how regularly the Maldives actually gets glowing algal blooms like this. So I guess the thing on the Bucket List is just seeing phytoplankton light up a beach :)
Maldives - Vaadhoo Island #travel #nature Achingly beautiful - a bloom of bioluminescent plankton on the beach jostled by a wave, giving off a blue light via a chemical reaction
Luminous plankton on the beaches of Vaadhoo Island, Raa Atoll, Maldives - 17 Amazing Photos taken from the air of beautiful places that will make you want to go there now!
Natural Rare phenomenon: Glowing blue water washes up on a beach in Vaadhoo, Island in the Maldives. The result of bioluminescence, a chemical reaction occurring when micro organisms in sea water are disturbed by oxygen!
Doug Perrine captured these stunning photographs in the Maldives. The particular location (Vaadhoo Island) has a concentrated population of bioluminescent phytoplankton. Bioluminescence is a natural chemical reaction which occurs when a micro-organism in the water reacts with oxygen. When washed ashore by the tides, the phytoplankton’s chemical energy is turned into light energy, illuminating the waves. Insanely beautiful!
moonless night in the Maldives. As the waves lap the shore, the beach lights up like Las Vegas. Glowing organisms stick to your feet. It is one of the most magical sights in the natural world: a bloom of bioluminescent plankton.This picture was taken on Vaadhoo Island, but bioluminescing organisms are found all over the world. The ones here are probably single-celled protists and marine crustaceans called copepods. Both glow when they are disturbed. Image: Doug Perrine.
This majestic beach shore looks like its from another planet or some kind of Sci-Fi movie but I can assure you that its 100% real! These beautiful neon blue lights are caused by a strange kind of species of marine microbes called Phytoplankton. They contain a natural chemical called luciferase which has the ability to create biological light, thus making what looks like a sea of glittering stars or as I personally like to call it a galaxy that was washed up on the beach.
Natural phenomenon: Glowing blue water washes up on a beach in Vaadhoo, one of the Raa Atoll islands in the Maldives. The result of a chemical reaction called bioluminescence, it occurs when a micro-organism in sea water is disturbed by oxygen Although a rare sight on a shoreline, the phenomenon is more commonly seen at sea in the wake of ships that stir up the oxygen in the sea, which causes the bioluminescent bacteria to glow. The night-time glow is a side-effect of blooming red algae,
