Tessellated pavement is extremely rare.
This natural phenomenon is only found in a few places on Earth where rocks have fractured into polygonal blocks and appear just like man-made tiles.
The pavement takes two forms;
Depressions known as ‘pan’ formations occurring when saltwater wears away the centre portion of the stone into pools. The opposite effect is known as a ‘loaf’ formation when the edges of the stone are worn away, leaving a rounded crown resembling rising bread.
Tessellated Pavement is always delightful and well worth a visit but never more than at sunrise when the site is a photographer’s paradise.
