Mauritius is home to one of the world’s best mysterious phenomena. A spectacular illusion, the underwater waterfall is located off the coast of Le Morne Brabant. The scene is an illusion, created by sand and silt on the ocean floor, that runs off in a way as if the water is pouring down. It also looks as if the entire island is being sucked down a massive drain. The sand from the higher coastal shelf is pulled down by the ocean currents into deeper waters, making the water infused with sand.
This phenomenon is possible because of the fact that Mauritius has a volcanic origin. Though the ocean shelf is not deeper than 150 metres, the abyss in which these sand-infused waters fall into is as deep as 4000 metres. Though the waters look beautiful from the shore, seeing this view requires a helicopter ride. Aerial shots create the most stunning and visually stimulating appeal. There are many set up for this sole purpose in Mauritius.
