It's definitely around right now (in our part of the Maldives, anyway). We've just shared a picture of our glowing blue beaches on our facebook page: www.facebook.com/ConradMaldivesRangaliIsland

Apparently it's easier to see on moonless nights.

Wow this is really nice! But unfortunately Conrad is a very expensive place which we can hardly afford =( is this phenomenon found throughout the Maldives by seaside or only in specific places?? I wonder whether I would have chance to see this at places which I'll be ggong...Hulhumale. .Maafushi and Kuredu Resort

In 14 trips I've only seen it once, and that was in Iru Fushi in November. It's amazing, like tiny diamonds and they stuck to your feet for a while so you had sparkly soles!
