A video posted Monday went viral on social media.
Rather than flowing down the cliff and into the waters of the Irish Sea, following the laws of physics, we see the waterfall evaporating into mist towards the sky.
Powerful winds push the water up and back, over the green cliff.
Storm Debi swept across the UK and Ireland earlier this week.
The weather phenomenon produced gusts in Aberdaron with speeds of up to around 124 kilometers per hour, according to the UK Met Office.

A wind warning has been issued for parts of Wales on Monday. The bad weather was expected to be more powerful along the coasts.
Storm Debi caused coastal flooding and widespread power outages in Ireland, according to local news.
