A phenomenon known as high tide or swell caused a tourist beach in Oaxaca in Mexico to disappear and put tourism in the area at risk. The authorities declared to be on alert against the affectation.
The place is known as Puerto Escondido, and it happened when the shore just unexpectedly sank. This phenomenon is explained as a breakdown of sand and occurs when the internal marine currents that carry the sand when the waves hit the beach.
Little by little the shore begins to disappear and the waves, although it seems harmless, can be a danger for bathers and boats. The strong waves disfigure the entire beach, giving the feeling that you will be trapped when falling.
