Witness an impressive geological formation at Seven Colored Earths. 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.

Seven Colored Earths Reviews
Une petite parcelle de terres colorées par différents oxydes, les couleurs ressortent selon la luminosité, c’est étonnant... La cascade de Chamarel est aussi une chose à voir. Excellent souvenir. more »A small parcel of land coloured by different oxides, colors result depending on the light, it's amazing... Chamarel waterfall is also a thing to see. Excellent memory.
La terre des 7 couleurs se trouve à proximité du parc national de rivière noire. La visite est payante et balisée et se fait facilement en 15 minutes. A voir si on ne passe pas loin mais pas indispens... more »The land of 7 colors is located near the national park of Black River. The tour is signposted and pay and is done easily in 15 minutes. See if we go away but not essential from my point of view compared to the other possibilities in Mauritius.
