Seven Colored Earths, Chamarel
(3/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
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. By using our Chamarel itinerary builder, you can arrange your visit to Seven Colored Earths and other attractions in Chamarel.

  • Nice ride, the Park is beautiful and different colors of the Earth are surprising. Very pretty waterfall just before.

  • this was an amazing place to visit, so many beautiful colours of rock which have to be seen to believe. 
  • Seven Coloured Earths is a must see when in Mauritius. It's not huge, but having travelled extensively I can honestly say I have never seen anything like it anywhere else.
