I'd recommend a trip to the Black River Gorges National Park, whilst in Mauritius - lots of beautiful scenery, waterfalls and the '7 colour earth' just outside Chamarel. The Chamarel waterfalls are one of the best parts of the excursion - a refreshing change from the endless beautiful beaches.

Everyone who comes to Mauritius, must see this! This was the third time, we came, because we want to show it to our friends.

The waterfall is the most beautiful one on the island. It is just a pity that all the restaurants in the area are so ridiculously overpriced. Ask for a local menu with confidence and you will be presented with a different one with prices still high, but at least a quarter of the prices of the first menu!

Although you can not get too close to the waterfall the distant view is amazing. The viewing platform gets very busy so arrive early.

We visited Chamarel as we were staying on the south of the island at bel ombré. The waterfall itself is spectacular but as other reports suggest you can't get close. However for 200 rupees you can also visit seven colours. Well worth the trip and the drive alone up through the rainforest with a good driver is well worth it.... More

One fee covers access the area which has this waterfall and the "7 coloured earth". So you get to look across a valley at a 100m waterfall which makes a good photo, then you go onto an area of perhaps 400m x200m where lava has coloured the earth into stripes of sort of brown, sort of orange and sort of...
