Seaweed balls drifted stranded on the beach that looks like velvet. Its a type of green algae, Aegagropila linnaei, known as marimo. At certain times, the beaches in Aceh are often seen Marimo rolling around swept by the waves.

In Japan the marimo has been a protected species since as early as 1920, defined as a natural treasure. Small balls sold as souvenirs are hand rolled from free-floating filaments. The marimo was given a status of protected species in Iceland in 2006. Both Lake Mývatn and Lake Akan are protected, the former as a nature reserve, the latter as a national park. credit

Great pics and thanks for the extra explanation!

Exquisite capture, an unforgettable image! Congratulations!

Maybe I do not often go to the beach so I have never seen Marimo, in Japan marimo on sale, even protected species, whether in Aceh there is already selling it.😂

Nice shot. Like the contrast between the green seaweed and sand/water.
