La Vallee des Couleurs, Chemin Grenier

(3.1/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Adventure across the varied terrain of La Vallee des Couleurs, a reserve rich in nature and geological features. The 23-colored earth--a vibrant patch of volcanic rock and sand--dates back millions of years to the eruption of the Bassin Blanc, its coloration the result of chemicals cooling at different temperatures. Across the extensive reserve you'll find a deer park, native plants such as wild orchids, Trochetia, and bouquet banane, along with pink pigeons, monkeys, and tortoises. Head for the zipline to see the park from above. Using our custom trip planner, Chemin Grenier attractions like La Vallee des Couleurs can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The setting is very pretty, especially the waterfall and Valley of the colors. The place lack of entertainment in my opinion, I find that we quickly made the rounds. Turtles are pretty impressive. The shop is very simplistic. The snack corner offers correct prices and terrace is nice. Is in place to discover if you're in the area, but it's not worth crossing the island for this.
