Chamarel Waterfall, Mauritius

#3 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.

  • Nice place, paying, grouped with the Earth in 7 colors. Quite touristy so frequent. It's a shame that we are not able to walk more to get.

  • Waterfall makes an impression. Something wonderful. The terraces scenic smell regional coffee growing nearby.

  • 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!
