Part of the seven sand tour. When you get to the waterfall stopping point (you take your car round) the waterfall is a long way away, so ensure you have a good zoom on your camera. No close ups possible

After a great 10km hike with a guide in Rivier Noire Gorges (stunning), we visited Chamarel Waterfall and the 7-coloured earths. Overall, it's worth a visit, but there are too many tourists.

The waterfall is nothing spectacular but the view point into the sea is beautiful. It was apart of the day tour. Nothing major much missed if you skip this land mark.😊

We visited here as part of a tour, the access is strenuous but a good view is also accessible from the lower view point without having to climb all the steps.

Hiya! I don't think that both these activities would take a whole day, but if you include travel from flic en flac then maybe it maybe a half day tour. Most of the sites which are on tripadvisor are in the south. Tour... More
