Coloured Earths - Until recently this monument to the volcanic
origins of the island was disappointing, due to unregulated
access and the trampling of tourists. However now timber viewing
platforms and walkways encircle this geological wonder of
multicoloured rolling landscape. The colours, best seen in the
morning, never fade and some scientists say it is due to the
uneven cooling of volcanic lava – it's a wonderful sight that
can be fun and educating at the same time!

impressive waterfalls. Whatever you choose to do, you now know
that family holidays in Mauritius are very much possible and
great fun for all!
