Like us, you might have seen those pictures of ‘glowing beaches’ on the internet quite a few times now. If not, you can check them out within this blog.

So, what’s the deal with these ‘glowing beaches’? How come the water glows, neon blue? We could say that there’s some ‘blue magic’ going on in the waters.
