at the southwest corner of the stunning island of Mauritius, there lies a breathtaking sight that seems to defy the laws of physics. This group of islands now sit upon what's known as a submarine plateau or ocean shelf. This shelf is no deeper than 150 metres below sea level and is the largest of its kind in the world. However, the drop off of this chef's edge plunges to depths of over 4000 metres into the abyss process you're witnessing in these incredible images is not the water itself falling, but the sand from the beautiful Mauritius beach is being forced off the plateau by oceanic currents.
