Bioluminescent Plankton at Padang Bai
During the day, this east coast bay is one of the busiest in Bali, but at night the shore can glow with brilliant luminescent hues of whites and blues. This remarkable scene is caused by Bioluminescent plankton, which often shimmers during the darker hours to produce one of the most wondrous natural sites in the world.
You can see this rare wonder from the shore itself, however, like the sky’s auroras, there are no guarantees of witnessing the phenomenon. To have a better chance, it’s advisable to take a boat, or even embark on a diving expedition to experience the beautiful show up close.
