One of the natural wonders of Mauritius, the Seven Coloured Earths is a geological phenomenon unique in the world. In the Chamarel clearing, you can spot small earth dunes whose colours oscillate between red, ochre, brown, grey, blue and purple. The colour palette varies according to the light, thus always offering a new show.
Formed by very ancient volcanic flows, containing mineral oxides of different colours, the earth does not mix with each colour remaining distinct. While you are not allowed to walk on the dunes, you can still admire this unique place, where no plants grow, from the footbridges and two kiosks set up.
