One of Mauritius’ most spectacular illusions is on the island country’s southwest, just off the coast of Le Morne where there is an illusion of an underwater waterfall. Interestingly, it is completely safe to surf and swim in.

This phenomenon occurs in the Indian Ocean and a view of it from a satellite shows how dramatic it is because the images appear like an underwater vortex occurring on the coast of the tropical paradise.

The island country of Mauritius lies in the Indian Ocean east of Madagascar. The volcanic main island of Mauritius is ringed by coral reefs; there are also several smaller islands.
