Snorkelers, divers and rare phenomenon observers wish to witness a moment like these…but only a few get to see this rare natural wonder … Coral Spawning!
Earlier this month, our coral reef near Constance Halaveli put on an awe-inspiring show as the annual coral spawning took place.
Predicting a coral spawning is very tricky as there are only a few indicators for the beginning of these events – the only advice is to be at the right place at the right time.
And our transport team at Constance Halaveli has been at the right place at the right time. They have observed the start of this natural wonder while going to the sand bank for a destination dinner.
A coral spawning usually occurs between 4 to 6 nights where millions of corals on reefs releases sperm and eggs into the water as part of the coral’s reproductive process.
The spectacle resembles an underwater snowstorm, with thousands buoyant gametes.
Witnessing such a rare phenomenon around the water of Constance Halaveli is rather re assuring and rewarding in a way, as it shows that the conservation of coral reefs project together with The International Union for Conservation of Nature have enabled such spectacular event.
