This should be seen on a sunny day, without the sun it is dull but in full sun light, it is a marvel.True it is far from everything by local standard(remember mauritius is a small island) but the sight is well worth the trip...

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...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!

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...More

“Seven colored earth” is for sure attention grabbing. One place with sand of 7 identifiable different colours(Red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple, yellow) all due to natural sedimentation & salt depositions was indeed remarkable. Since these are differently coloured sands with different texture they settle...More
