The “underwater waterfall”...

The underwater waterfall, located on the southwestern shore, might serve as a signature of Mauritius. It is n’t an actual waterfall, but an optical illusion: the sediment of sand and silt create this dramatic site. The reason for this is that the island is relatively new and a formation of it is still present, causing an underwater slope.The Underwater Waterfall is located in Mauritius Island in the Indian Ocean east of Madagascar. An optical illusion created by sand washed into patterns that make it appear as an underwater waterfall…
