Chamarel Waterfall, Mauritius

4.1
#2 of 25 in Nature in Mauritius
Admire an impressive natural water feature at Chamarel Waterfall. Plunging 83 m (272 ft) in a single drop, the waterfall spills over a sheer cliff face surrounded by thick vegetation, creating an iconic sight. View the fall from the observation deck located at its top, and descend to the pool at its base to enjoy some swimming in the shallow waters. Prebook to experience rappelling down the waterfall's length, taking in the scenery and the power of the ancient gush of water from a dramatic perspective.

  • Chamarel Waterfall (also referred to simply as "Chamarel Falls") as cascades more than 300 feet downward into a lush gorge. These enchanting falls are located on the island of Mauritius, which sits in the Indian Ocean roughly 700 miles due east of Madagascar. Ecotourism is an expanding industry here, as this volcanic island is home to extraordinary landscapes and marine life.
  • It's okay. The place has a slight hike. But it's paved steps, so it's not a big deal. The view isn't great, but it's nice. It's pretty average by Mauritian standards. Definitely something you should see when you're heading back from Chamarel, 7 Colored Earth.
  • Really nice place wish there were some activities
  • Nice waterfall. Worth a visit if you are in the area
  • Beautiful waterfalls in Mauritius. A natural fall going downwards which can't be seen from top.
