Dive into Bioluminescent Plankton

This mystical phenomenon, known as bioluminescence, is brought to life by a chemical reaction in certain plankton types. When these minuscule organisms are disturbed, they release a substance called luciferin. Upon contact with the enzyme luciferase, an enchanting light is emitted. The result is a breathtaking display as the plankton glow, transforming the beach into a surreal paradise.
