Massive Wave Hurdles Over Reef Barrier Near Swimmers
Cailyn Finkel 8/1/2017
The visitors and locals were enjoying the gorgeous weather and beautiful ocean water at a peaceful beach in Puerto Rico had no idea what was brewing on the other side of a beach barrier one day. But one person caught everything on camera.
What would you do if massive waves were breaching the surface of a beach barrier and slamming down just a few feet away? Well, if you're these swimmers in Playa Puerto Nuevo in Vega Baja, Puerto Rico, you continue to play around in the warm water!
She wrote, "I can't decide which I was more impressed by: witnessing the massive wave that hits the reef islands at Playa Puerto Nuevo... or the fact that not a single person at the whole beach seems to be remotely bothered by the event whatsoever."
It seems as though no one even noticed that massive waves were toppling over the reef and within feet of swimmers! Obviously, this is something locals are used to and they go about their day at the beach like nothing is wrong!
You can actually see the ocean waves high up above the reef barrier, leaving you breathless with anticipation as to what will happen next. Nature's final gigantic splash in this video leaves behind a breathtaking white blanket across the reef that disappears within seconds.
Don't take your eyes off of the video or you'll miss the captivating ending. It's too good not to watch.
