Seven Colored Earths, Chamarel

3.1
#1 of 28 in Wildlife in Riviere Noire District
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.

  • We arrived early, the site was nearly empty, we were able to enjoy this beautiful well-maintained "Park". Contrast of green and ochre... a marvel. The show of turtles in period of mating was also super nice, we saw turtles energetic, if possible.
