The Underwater Waterfall At Mauritius Island Is One Of The Coolest Illusions You’ll Ever See

The island of Mauritius is located off the coast of Africa, and was first discovered by the Arabs in 975 AD, then by the Portuguese between 1507 and 1513.

It’s one of the most beautiful islands in the Indian Ocean, if not the entire world.

It’s also home to some of the rarest plant and animal specimens in the world.

What’s even more incredible is what’s located underneath the water….. When viewed from high above, you can actually see what appears to be a waterfall.

Honestly, if you didn’t know better, you would actually think it’s real. I know I did. As science explains, sand and silt sink farther and father into the ocean giving off the waterfall illusion.

But the view is completely breathtaking, check it out….
