Explore Chamarel Seven Coloured Earths, one of Mauritius main tourist attractions.

It is composed of sand dunes of various different colours (red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow). Intriguingly, when you mix the colours together, they’ll settle in distinct layers resulting in a colourful spectrum with each dot of sand rejoining its colour caste. You’ll even be tricked as the colours can appear like shadow sometimes. You can buy small test tubes filled with coloured earths at shops in the nearby area. Next, see the 83 meter high waterfall together with the amazing views of the greenery plants and trees.

Have a delicious snack or lunch at the geopark’s restaurant, MOKA’Z Chamarel. You’ll get to taste the authentic Café de Chamarel, locally grown and roasted in the same area. Great value for money.

Belle journée à voir le phénomène des sables colorés. La dégradation de couleurs sont si belles. après la pluie, les couleurs reprennent leur place. Un café et une boutique de cadeaux propres et écologiques… un plaisir à voir


Beautiful out there

Visited this amazing geological wonder as part of a full day trip, It is a very busy place, but our driver was experienced enough to get us there before the hoards which enabled us to enjoy this wonder. Chamarel waterfall is also nearby and is amazing.

It’s once in a lifetime trip! This was a pretty amazing thing to view different colours of sand dunes all together. The views at the waterfall were great too. Will do it when I’m in Mauritius again!! Special thanks to the driver.
