Trip Planner: Africa / Mauritius / Riviere Noire District / Chamarel / Chamarel’s Seven Coloured Earth Geopark
Witness an impressive geological formation at Chamarel’s Seven Coloured Earth Geopark. The attractive area of dunes features sand of seven distinct colors: red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple, and yellow settle in separate layers, forming colorful stripes. The decomposition of volcanic rock cooling at different temperatures causes the separation, which, taken as a whole, appears otherworldly. Remember to bring your camera to catch this strange natural sight from behind the fences of the observation deck, and consider taking home a small tube of the sands from one of the many sellers by the entrance. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Chamarel’s Seven Coloured Earth Geopark by using our Chamarel day trip planning app.

It’s a pretty little spot to sit and have a coffee. Depending on the cloud cover the colours change a lot. more »
The view is stunning, and the road to get there is very scenic. Worth a visit for sure 😀 Don’t forget to visit the waterfall too. The whole experience is very rewarding- nature at its best. more »
