Read more

Mauritius is known for its white sand beaches but also for its picturesque mountains and its luxuriant tropical vegetation!

A stay in Mauritius would be incomplete without taking the time to go hiking in the heart of the island to discover unique landscapes. During your excursions, you will have the chance to discover forests, canyons, splendid rivers and of course sublime waterfalls. If you are looking for waterfalls, we'll explain you where to find the most beautiful waterfalls of Mauritius!

Alexandra Falls

The Black River Gorges National Park and its Alexandra Falls are among the must-see places for a stay in Mauritius. Located in the western part of the island, this natural area that you can reach with your rental car, is simply the largest natural park in Mauritius. Magical landscapes, rainforest, several species of birds, rich flora, rivers and of course waterfalls ... are waiting for you for a memorable hike!

Composed of several waterfalls and located at more than 700 meters above sea level, the Alexandra Falls is impressive and worth the detour for the beauty of its setting. Beware, the paths are relatively steep in the Black River Gorge National Park, so bring good hiking shoes for your excursion.

Chamarel waterfall

Over 100 meters high, the Chamarel waterfall is one of the most impressive on the island. In the heart of the nature reserve of the Valley of the Seven Colors, a hike to discover the Chamarel waterfall will allow you to explore this unique protected area. With its ten million-year-old volcanic rocks, this valley is indeed a must see in Mauritius. A little extra, bring your bathing suit as you can swim in the creek formed by the waterfall.

Rochester Falls

Rochester Falls is located in the south of the island, about 2.5 kilometers from the village of Souillac. Only 10 meters high, it is the largest waterfall on the island. Its rectangular shaped rocks carved by erosion and its unique setting in the heart of nature make it a magical place. To reach it, you will have to take a pleasant walk through the green sugar cane fields.

7 Cascades / Tamarind falls

Near Tamarin, the 7 waterfalls hike is one of the most exceptional excursions to discover the lush vegetation of Mauritius. Between waterfalls and canyons, you will be amazed. According to your desires, you will have the choice between two circuits. You can do the short circuit that will take you to the first four waterfalls in half a day, or the full circuit to discover the seven waterfalls in one day. Note that you will be able to swim during your day trip. You can do this hike alone, but we strongly advise you to take a guide and have someone accompany you on this tour.

Eau Bleue Waterfall

In the south of the island, the Eau Bleue waterfall is impressive with its fifteen meters height. Composed in reality of three falls, the cascade of Eau Bleue carries its name well with the magic turquoise color of the basin in which it flows. Don't miss the chance to enjoy a unique swim in this dreamy natural environment!

The waterfall of Grande Rivière Sud-Est

If you are planning an excursion to Ile aux Cerfs during your trip, we advise you to stop and see the Grande Rivière Sud-Est waterfall on your way. You can reach it by sea through the mouth of Grande Rivière Sud-Est or by road through the cane fields. In any case, expect to be amazed by this emblematic waterfall! You now know where to find the most beautiful waterfalls in Mauritius, so don't miss them for your next stay in the heart of the Indian Ocean!
