The village of Chamarel represents a small settlement surrounded by big attractions.
Step out of the city life by going to Trou aux Cerfs and Seven Colored Earths. Kids will appreciate attractions like Le Morne Brabant and Black River Gorges National Park. Next up on the itinerary: stop by Rhumerie de Chamarel, examine the collection at Curious Corner of Chamarel, contemplate the long history of The Martello Tower Museum, and admire the sheer force of Chamarel Waterfall.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Chamarel trip planner .

Durban, South Africa to Chamarel is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Durban to Chamarel. Traveling from Durban in April, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Chamarel, with lows around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Grand Baie.

Grand Baie

Grand Baie ©
Wide-open beaches with dazzling blue water and a relaxed coastal atmosphere lure visitors to take a trip to Grand Baie.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Martin Beffert Jewellery Design and Central Market. Escape the urban bustle at Ile aux Cerfs and Grand Gaube Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Port Louis (The Photographic Museum, Blue Penny Museum, & more). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of L'Aventure du Sucre, stop by Studio 44 Mauritius, kick back and relax at Mont Choisy Beach, and admire the natural beauty at SSR Botanic Garden.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Grand Baie trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Getting from Chamarel to Grand Baie by car takes about 1.5 hours. In April in Grand Baie, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
