Seven Colored Earths, Chamarel

3.1
#1 of 27 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.

    Make sure you dont miss this attraction while in Mauritius. This place is unique, natural place, with amazing views. You cannot find anything like this elsewhere.  more »

    8 euros per people (course coupled with the waterfall...) to see a field of cross species with the land of many colors... Not impressive and enchanting... free entry would be more appropriate...

    It's a nice stop-over for 30 minutes. The earth looks great in the sun, plus you can see turtles in the same place. There's a nice coffee place where you can sit, sometimes you can observe sugar syrup...  more »
