Chamarel Seven Coloured Earth: Experience the unmatched beauty and unusual form of sand dunes at Chamarel Seven Coloured Earth. It is one of the prominent tourist attractions of Mauritius. Over millions of years, these dunes have been formed. As the water-soluble earth elements got washed away, the remains emerged as reddish-black coloured sand reflecting shades of blue, cyan and purple. Heavy downpour and harsh climatic forces fail to take this magnificent colour-effect away. To experience the exotic colour-play of sands, Sunrise is the best time to visit the dunes.
Crystal Rock: Don't dare to forget to add Crystal Rock visit during your stay in Mauritius. This little beauty of nature is here to surprise you with its unusual placement and structure. This is basically the exposed section of a fossilized coral reef. To make a wholesome travel experience, you must include snorkelling, swimming with dolphins and boat riding in your schedule. The rock is just 200 meters away from the shore. Crystal Rock gives a splendid view of the Le Morne Mountain. Crystal clear water allows your sight to penetrate through the surface layer.
