The first time I saw the magical phytoplankton was at the Anjarle beach where my friends and I were camping late at night. We were admiring the stars above us when one of us spotted the glowing pattern in the water. It was surreal. As if nature wanted to have a conversation with us and phytoplankton was the medium.
It's important that we experience all of nature's marvel once in our life, and watching phytoplankton at night in its full glory is one of them. So we have found a hostel in Gokarna that is right near the beach where you can experience the sea water glow at night.
