The Underwater Waterfall – Mauritius

Underwater Waterfall Mauritius

Just off the coast of Le Morne, on the island of Mauritius, we are amazed by one of the most spectacular illusions in the world: The Underwater Waterfall. Sand and silt on the ocean floor run off in a way that makes it look like they’re pouring down a waterfall — or like the entire island is being sucked down a vast drain. It’s really just the flow of underwater currents that create the dramatic image, nevertheless breathtaking.

Fascinating capture by Fabrice To.
