The beautiful underwater waterfall, an optical illusion, is located near the shores of Le Morne Brabant in the South-West of Mauritius. The illusion is the result from the movement of sand and silt sediments under the influence of powerful underwater currents. A true wonder not to be missed, the underwater waterfall is absolutely breathtaking and only visible from high above.
Additionally, you will have the wonderful opportunity of enjoying magnificent aerial views of the majestic Le Morne mountain, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located near the underwater waterfall.

Additional Information about the Sights on the West coast of Mauritius
The phenomenal Underwater Waterfall in Mauritius is one of the most unique geological formations in the world. Located on the southern-west tip of the island, this dramatic and out of the ordinary geological phenomenon offers an outstanding sight.
Mauritius happens to sit on an ocean shelf raised above seabed level. Off this particular coast, a gradual slope is noticed, abruptly ending in a 4000-meter-deep abyssal drop. Thanks to this marine topography, various shades of blue are visible, due to the constant movement of sand and silt deposits along these slopes. It is this unique harmony of shades which create the wondrous optical illusion known as the underwater waterfall.
Le Morne Mountain
The symbolic Le Morne Brabant is a majestic mountain located in the South Western part of Mauritius, on the Le Morne peninsula. The majestic mountain has been declared as a World Heritage site by the UNESCO since July 6, 2008 to commemorate the Maroonage (runaway slaves) legacy in Mauritius. It is believed that the slaves were committing suicide by jumping off the cliff of the mountain due to the very inhumane treatment they suffered.
Le Morne Brabant is one of the most preserved and wildest mountains of the island. It is a habitat to a very large variety of endemic and narrow-endemic species, such as the rare Trochetia Boutoniana, which is the floral emblem of Mauritius.
