7 Coloured Earth

Come and see a rainbow in the sand at Chamarel’s 7 Coloured Earth Geopark.

The sand dunes have layers of red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow sand, revealing 600 million years of geology. The geopark is around 8.5 hectares and is home to geology education and conservation. There’s a coffee shop and restaurant here and it’s good to twin 7 Coloured Earth Geopark with Chamarel Waterfall, as you’ll see this on the drive up to the sand dunes. Chamarel Waterfall is the tallest single-drop waterfall in Mauritius and you can photograph it from the viewpoint!
