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.

  • We were en route to Ebony Forest and 7 Coloured Earths when driving by the waterfall. We did not even realise it was there until arriving. Very impressive sight - do not miss this one  more »
  • Visited briefly as part of a whistle stop tour so just managed to take a few photos then leave. It's a nice waterfall in a lovely setting so was worth seeing.  more »
  • Visited as part of a tour of the south of the island and very happy this was included. Brief walk from car park gives you a great view but go up the ramp or steps to a higher viewing platform whereby ...  more »

  • A nice view on a waterfall and hundreds of people being there. Impressive, but the view is from the other side of the valley. Combined with the 7 coloured earth interesting but nothing special. It is promoted heavily over the island, but there are more things to be seen. So if you are time constraint, better think twice if that is needed.
  • Chamarel Waterfalls are nice waterfalls close to the Seven Coloured Earths. This is a quick visit to be done prior to going to the Seven Coloured Earths. The waterfall is not really amazing, as it is quite small and you can access it, but the view is really nice with the jungle.
  • Amazing! Worth the detour! But with that visit you won’t be able to get close to the waterfall. It’s just a view. I suggest going to the Black River Gorge Park. Nice place in any case!
  • Simply beautifull and deserve the 3min stop. Take the stairs on the right. You end up having a better view
  • One of the most stunning waterfalls I have ever seen! Two wiew points And the higher is even Better. Lots of parking places.
