About Chamarel Coloured Earth, Chamarel

A geological formation that will blow away your mind with its first glimpse; the seven coloured earth is located in the Chamarel Plains of the Rivière Noire District in south-western Mauritius. Its multi-coloured sand dunes in seven distinct colours of red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow are surreal.

The best part of this phenomenon is that, if you pick up a handful of sand and mix it spontaneously, it will eventually separate out in multi-colours! Another striking feature of these sand dunes are- they never erode, even in the torrential and tropical rains of Mauritius!

This is one of the top rated attractions of Mauritius. Souvenir shops selling small test tubes filled with coloured earth are dotted around the sand dunes!

Chamarel Coloured Earth, Chamarel Reviews

  • The Seven Colored Earth are situated in a larger park with waterfalls and other viewpoints. As a visitor you can decide to either walk or drive by car. I recommend waking only for people without any disabilities because the distance is long. The attraction site is small but well maintained. If needed you can buy beverages and drinks at the venue. For kids you find a playground right beside the attraction.

  • A fascinating place. Definately worth the visit. Make sure you go find the giant tortoises, they're off the main path, so easy to miss, but definitely worth going to see.

  • Very nice place with good natural overviews. Has a small good restaurant to get fresh juice, suger can, Milch shakes. For the entrance have to pay small amount which really acceptable.

  • If you see the pictures on the web, you have already seen most of it. It is interesting, but not spectacular, nor is the entrance fee in any relation to what you will experience. A nice to see, but you do not miss anything if not going there...

  • Well maintained and easy access. It is interesting to see, but I don't think it would be worth while going specifically to see this attraction. As part of a southern island tour then it fits well.
