Swim in an underwater waterfall off the coast of Mauritius
You would be excused for being cautious when swimming in the azure blue sea just off the south western tip of Mauritius, as just a stone’s throw away from the blindingly white sandy beaches the crystal clear sea appears to be sucked downwards into the deep blackness of the Indian Ocean.
This stunning natural wonder is called ‘the underwater waterfall’, as the sloping colours of blues and greens resemble gushing water pulsing down towards a deep-sea cavern.
This incredible natural phenomenon is caused by sand that silts to form astonishing patterns that create the illusion of water falling.
