If you staying on the northern parts of the Island, it is one long drive to this place, there are other attractions to visit along the way though. Not a must see but if you have a day of touring, you might as well visit the place.

Would only suggest this place if you have absolutely nothing else to do in Mauritius and you are near the chamarel region. I would not make a trip of this excursion. It cost 225 rupee per person ($6) and the sand is so underwhelming. It's also walled off. You can see the waterfall before seeing the sand. Overall..not a great... More

If you dont expect a lot you'll be surprised. Inside the chamarel area, a small park in which you can see also giant turtles. I dont think its a must, but IT could be interesting To see.

Seven colored Earth is a kind of phenomenon and it is worth going to visit it. Depending on the time of the day and weather, colors also change, so make sure to be there during sunny day when colors are most natural.

A must see when going to view the waterfalls at Chamarel. Will also see the huge tortoises. Lovely place to relax and see the 7 colours from various angles. Can walk right around the area.

We recently visited this great attraction, the curio shop was well stocked. They sell a variety of coffees etc etc. The seven colour sand was something good to see!

A lot of the pictures of this which you will find online have been doctored to make it look a little more impressive than it is. Worth seeing if you're going to see the waterfall/ tortoises as well.

At 225 Rupees per head (about £5) this won't break the bank and you'll get to see: (1) Chamarel Cascades (view point) (2) 7 Coloured Earth & (3) 4-5 tortoises However the visit won't take you that long and I've seen a greater array of colours- for free - at Parys Mountain (Anglesey in Wales). Need to know: (1) View... More

You will need a car/taxi to visit. When we arrived in our hire car, we saw a raised barrier and booth, so we stopped and got out but could not see anyone so continued driving. This is the only place selling entrance tickets, as we discovered after we had seen the waterfall and driven up to reach the sands, we... More
