Chamarel Waterfall, Mauritius

4.1
#2 of 27 in Nature in Mauritius
Admire an impressive natural water feature at Chamarel Waterfall. Plunging 83 m (272 ft) in a single drop, the waterfall spills over a sheer cliff face surrounded by thick vegetation, creating an iconic sight. View the fall from the observation deck located at its top, and descend to the pool at its base to enjoy some swimming in the shallow waters. Prebook to experience rappelling down the waterfall's length, taking in the scenery and the power of the ancient gush of water from a dramatic perspective.

  • Seen a lot of waterfalls. This one isn’t at the top of that list. It’s nice but it’s hard to see the full thing from the viewpoints. We saw it with the 7 coloured earth which again didn’t really wow u...  more »

  • This historic and beautiful place is a must visit in Mauritius. There are two viewing platforms for the falls and both give amazing opportunities for photographs. The fall entry closes by 4.30 so make it there on time. There is also an entry fee for the area.
  • Nice enough waterfall but not eternally rememberable. Rather steep entry fee (to a private estate) also gives you access to the “7 coloured sands”. Don’t be fooled into thinking this justifies the entrance, see my review of the sands. Saw some cute dogs at the waterfall though!
  • A beautiful natural waterfall. A must see when in Mauritius. There are many small tours that includes the Chamarel waterfalls. The spectacular view can be seen from 2 lookout points be sure to observe the falls at both.
  • It's a great place to see a splendid view of Chamarel waterfall and the 7 coloured earth as well take a hike in the ebony forest. The place has restrooms, souvenir shops as well as a little restaurant. Kids can walk around the 7 coloured earth and see the tortoise.
  • It is a part of the south trip of Mauritius. A must see. Especially do not miss going up the step to the vantage point to see the water fall from a hieght. It looks very imposibg. Although you long to go close to it. There is some nice exotic foliage.
