Seven Colored Earths, Chamarel

(3.1/5 based on 2,800+ 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.

  • We were cruising. In preposlednij day made a tour of the most interesting places. Of course, advance learned that are worth a look. Seven-color sands especially interested. In the beginning there were falls. Beautiful panorama. But, we in Siberia there are much more beautiful waterfalls. OK, don't compare. From semicvetnyh sands expected more. Initially, even while others were saddened. But when the Sun came out, really land highlighted in bright colors. Interesting. It's beautiful. Mauritius generally liked.

  • Place beautiful and staple of the island. The visit is not long, but like most site visits, admission is charged. The toilets are cleaned at all times. Thought to recharge your cameras, because the place is worth it.

  • Honestly, nothing special really. When the sun is shining the colour differences are not that visible.  more »
