Chamarel ©
The village of Chamarel represents a small settlement surrounded by big attractions.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chamarel: Takamaka Boutique Winery (in Vacoas) and Souillac (Gris Gris Beach & Rochester Falls). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Seven Colored Earths, explore the striking landscape of Black River Gorges National Park, get impressive views of Trou aux Cerfs, and admire the sheer force of Chamarel Waterfall.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Chamarel vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to Chamarel is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Arabia Standard Time to Mauritius Time, which is usually a 1 hour difference. Traveling from Riyadh in August, expect Chamarel to be much colder, temps between 29°C and 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Thu) early enough to go by car to Grand Baie.
