Chamarel’s Seven Coloured Earth Geopark, Chamarel

#1 of 151 in Wildlife in Mauritius
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.
