"Multi-Colored Earth"

The Seven Coloured Earth of Chamarel is a surreal geological formation, a stretch of rippling sand in seven colors. Created by the uneven cooling of the lava and the subsequent erosion of the multi-colored rocks, this curious anomaly has come to be one of Mauritius' most popular attractions. Red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow sands form undulating layers that swoop and swirl around the shallow dunes; a sandy pool of serpentine bands of color surrounded by lush tropical forests. Even when intentionally mixed, the differently colored sand spontaneously settles into distinct layers once more. Interestingly, despite torrential rain, the Seven Coloured Earth does not seem to erode but instead remains oddly undisturbed. The colors are at their brightest in the sunshine right after rain or at sunrise when the golden rays set the sands ablaze.
