Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chamarel: La Vanille Nature Park (in Riviere des Anguilles), Alexandra Falls (in Union Park) and Takamaka Boutique Winery (in Vacoas). There's lots more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Chamarel’s Seven Coloured Earth Geopark, see the interesting displays at Curious Corner of Chamarel, take in the dramatic scenery at Chamarel Waterfall, and don't miss a visit to Le Morne Brabant.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Chamarel vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Tel Aviv, Israel to Chamarel is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Tel Aviv to Chamarel due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Tel Aviv in December, things will get a bit warmer in Chamarel: highs are around 35°C and lows about 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Pamplemousses.
