Sea of Clouds

Marvellous natural scene

The sea of clouds is a surprising natural phenomenon caused by the trade winds, which gently push the clouds against the mountains and condense the wet air in northern and north-eastern areas at a height of between 600 and 1800 metres.

Above this height, the drier and hotter winds prevent the clouds from rising. Seen from above, these spectacular seas of clouds created by these climatic conditions lead to a marvellous sight and are a dream setting for filming.
