Seven Colored Earths, Chamarel

(3,000+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • Essential site in Mauritius. The entrance gives access to the amazing site of 7 colors but also a view on a lovely waterfall.

  • Good visit, but it is much more spectacular if there is Sun, since if it is cloudy the visual effect is rather more loosely.
