Trip Planner: Africa / Mauritius / Riviere Noire District / Chamarel / Chamarel Seven Coloured Earth Geopark
Witness an impressive geological formation at Chamarel 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.

As a natural formation it is quite interesting but after walking around it there's not much else going on. The drive down and stopping to see the waterfall was better than the 7 coloured earth in my opinion. They had a nice cafe where the prices were not extortionate and the tortoises were also interesting. I would guess if you went with kids they would be more interested in the giant tortoises over everything else.
Visited Chamarel viewpoint and 7 Coloured Earth. When you entered the park, you need to drive couple minutes to viewpoints and 7 Coloured Earth. And the road was very well maintained. Parking is available.👌🏼 I recommend you to come here early with less tourists.🤓 Don’t forget to visit giant tortoise family near the 7 Coloured Earth.
