Chamarel Coloured Earths
This landscape has been tourist attraction and geological curiosity since the 1960s. It is located near the village of Chamarel, Mauritius. Such sand dunes area The Seven Coloured Earths is approximately 7,500 square meters, with 7 shades of blue, red, green, brown, purple, yellow, and violet. The different shades of surrealistic landscape are a consequence of the molten volcanic rock cooling down at different external temperatures. Another amazing feature of Chamarel’s Coloured Earths is that the dunes never erode, in spite of Mauritius’ torrential, tropical rains. The dunes are wisely protected by a wooden fence and tourists are not allowed to climb them. Instead, they can look at the scenery from observation outposts placed along the fence.
In addition to admiring the colored sands, visitors can buy a souvenire tube in local stores filled with wonderful colorful sand. Noteworthy, the layers of sand of different colors in the test tube also do not mix. In particular, if you shake the tube, the layers mix together, however, after a while they will separate according to seven colors: red, brown, purple, green, cyan, magenta and yellow.
