This place is literally small. They keep a sample of every sand colour in the museum (same place where you get the tickets from to access).

You can see everything worth seeing in the pictures. The huge turtles were the only interesting thing to see. Not worth the visit.

Having been there over 14 years ago and remembering being very underwhelmed was pleasantly surprised. The waterfall was lovely, the sands were nice- went on a sunny day and I think the sun and angle of light would make a difference on these differing colonies of sands. Happy to have gone and spent the day with my grandparents thanks (ps... More

Mauritius is not only about sea, sun, sand, surf, seashells and sangria. Off the beaten track you'll find this extraordinary phenomenon of 7 colour earth, adjacent to where enormous turtles are housed.

A unique place, not to be missed. At first glance, it looked less spectacular than I expected after seeing tons of photos and magazines about it. But it offers various angles and under the sun it reveals as something purely beautiful, especially with the green views of the hills in the background. There is also a small garden with local...

The place is ok and not an must see. Good for a walk around while visiting Chamarel area. Best time would be 3 to 5 pm so sunlight falls on the sand. You can spend less than an hour there.
