The view of the waterfalls is very nice, and the waterfall is active almost throughout the year. You get to see the waterfall from 2 different positions. You get a better view of the complete falls, when you climb some 25-30 odd stairs up the small hill. A perfect place for photo shootings.

On our way by car from the Grand Bassin to Chamarel, there were signs to visit the "Alexandra" waterfalls. It was a 2 Km. drive from the main road, so we followed it, parked in a huge parking place full of Omnibuses and made our walk once more following the signs.

The view is fantastic, something to share with the one you love. The climb to the top is easy going, so no problem if you don't like steps, it more of a ramp.

Walked to see this dramatic waterfall on the way to visit the Seven Coloured Earths further down the track. Well worth a visit.

A beautiful natural vision and a great backdrop for any selfie. Not to be missed by anyone the photos don't do this justice.

This a typical attraction of the area. We went there, as many many other tourists, and I have to agree that the place is gorgeous, calm and very nice. The waterfall is impressive (less than in Canada or States) and the way back by car showed us the real Mauricius with little villages, poor, and authentical.
