“Good, but not very much to see.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Coloured earth is worth to see, but especially when you have a way around. A special trip just to see coloured earth isn't really worth it. Coloured earth is beautiful, but it's really a small place. What is much better than the attraction itself is the great view of Chamarel hills and tropical wilderness, which you can see on the way to the Coloured Earth. I recommend on your return, not to take the same way as you get there, take the another way, which is around 9 km till you get to the main road. You won't be dissapointed.

“Really Interesting...You Have to see this”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

When you first see this you get the impression of interesting and this is nothing really great. But what you need to do, is research this site on Wikipedia and then the site becomes AMAZING. It's a unique and amazing site...but do the research before you go. The signage at the site does not fully explain what you are seeing.

“Just another attraction.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Chamarel Coloured Earth is just an average place to be. Nothing great. Food very expensive. The waterfall was very tiny may be with some more rains it will look good. Small charge for entry. Some tortoise to watch. Thats it.
