The "Frozen Waves": A special phenomenon in Attica
The images you will see below, in the video of the haanitychannel of Youtube are really special and not at all ordinary. As you will see, the shallow waters and the Currents have created in the sea like small hills of sand which have taken a special form that makes them look like "Frozen Waves". If you look from above, you will see that no matter how much the sea moves above them, these waves seem to remain still, forming a corridor of white sand. What is even more impressive is the turquoise that makes the phenomenon dreamy.
This is a rare phenomenon observed in an area between Agistri Island and Aegina island in the Saronic Gulf very close to the islet of Metopi. The spot is right here as you will see on Google Maps.
It is believed by some that the shallow waters around the islet of Metopi were once land connected to Agistri and Aegina, but after centuries they sank.
