The Undersea Falls of Mauritius

In the Indian Ocean lies the island of Mauritius, and off its southern coast lies the phenomenon of the "underwater waterfall."

Seen here from the sky, it looks like a cascade is pouring off the island shelf into the depths below. Well, apparently that part is an illusion; water wouldn't fall like that inside of itself. However, something is falling down that hole, and that something is sand.

More details and larger pictures here and here.
