Plan my day in Chamarel using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Manama, Bahrain to Chamarel is an approximately 12-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone changes from Arabia Standard Time to Mauritius Time, which is usually a 1 hour difference. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Manama in December: high temperatures in Chamarel hover around 34°C and lows are around 27°C.
