The village of Chamarel is one of the most visited spots on the island but still manages to keep its authenticity and simplicity. The most interesting side of the village is of course its inhabitants: make sure to take the time to share a conversation with them, their kindness and good spirits are contagious!


Nestled in the mountains that dominate the southwestern coast of Mauritius, Chamarel is just 15 minutes drive away from the beach. There are several restaurants, view points and hiking trails starting from this area.

There are several adventurous trails to do around Chamarel like “Le Morne” or “Piton de la Rivière Noire”. We can recommend you some specialised guides that will lead your tour.

We invite you to discover our village and enjoy the main attractions around us. Please contact us if you have any questions about the village and its surroundings.
