Amazing Aerial Photo Illusions of an Underwater Waterfall in Mauritius

Located at Le Morne Cultural Landscape at the Southwestern tip of Mauritius, you will find a fascinating underwater waterfall illusion.

This Unesco World Heritage Site when viewed from above provides the illusion of an ‘underwater waterfall’. Underwater waterfalls of course don’t exist but these aerial photographs below clearly show this illusion like this photo to the above by an unknown photographer (via KULfoto.com)

The waves play a big part in this illusion but there’s probably a tiny current too because the “cold” water would drop down in the deeper parts and drag sand with it creating this cool effect.
