I can only assume the people that have rated this place a five stars have simply done so to make the rating higher and get more people to visit and feel duped. A totally underwhelming experience which is essentially a few piles of sand in...More

This is a fascinating place to see. Natural 7 coloured soil exists in this place. They also have a section with the Huge Tortoises. 6-7 of them, so if u havent gone to any other place to see them - u can see them here....More

Rented a car to see the island of Mauritius. The 7 coloured earth is a natural formation of different minerals coloring the earth giving it a interesting hue. Worth a visit as part of places to see south of Mauritius.

Located in the Riviere Noire District, these color variations are due to the cooling of molten rock. Viewing the dunes in the morning hours are best when the sun light and the dew bring out the best of the colors.

It is a beautiful park where we took nice pictures of nature's colours. It is well maintained and clean. There is also a small gift shop and a place to eat and drink.

The seven coloured earth as the name suggests is a little corner where the land produced an amazing mix of colours. Some endemic plants and turtles are present there as well. Nice souvenirs can be found

Worth the drive, don't care what anybody say. Beautiful surroundings and fresh island air. Just one tip: The Gift shop do not have card facilities, you can only buy with cash.

We visited seven coloured earths as part of a tour around the south of the island. It is an interesting place and the scenery is beautiful in and around the area. There were also some giant tortoises to see at this location. Worth a visit...More

We hired a taxi / car with driver for a whole day and had a tour of various tourist attractions, which gave UBS the freedom to choose how long we wanted to stay at each site. Worked better for us than a coach excursion with... More
