Coffee paradise on Earth: Cappuccino coast
Cappuccino coast was created when foam swallowed an entire beach and half the nearby buildings, including the local lifeguards’ center, in a freak display of nature at Yamba in New South Wales, Australia.
It stretched for 30 miles out into the Pacific in a phenomenon not seen at the beach for more than three decades. Scientists explain that the foam is created by impurities in the ocean, such as salts, chemicals, dead plants, decomposed fish and excretions from seaweed.
All are churned up together by powerful currents which cause the water to form bubbles. These bubbles stick to each other as they are carried below the surface by the current towards the shore.
As a wave starts to form on the surface, the motion of the water causes the bubbles to swirl upwards and, massed together, they become foam. “It’s the same effect you get when you whip up a milk shake in a blender,” explains a marine expert.
Summer is here, Folks! So if you’re a coffee addict or you just want to swim in a water different from the usual one, Cappuccino coast is the perfect destination for your summer vacation this year.
