About the location

Lakaz Charamel is cleverly positioned on the side of the island, sheltered from the wind and offering warm sunshine. The Black River Gorges National Park is within easy reach, and offers access to Chamarel Falls and the Seven Coloured Earths. These mineral rich, rolling sand dunes have distinctive hues. Viewed against the green forest and dazzling blue sky the sight of these stripy sands is an unforgettable one.

From the coast, you’ll observe boats gliding across the waters to the powder white beaches and warm lagoons of Ile aux Benitiers, or heading south taking their passengers on a scenic sea cruise to Le Morne Brabant. And in the village itself you’ll find Curious Corner of Chamarel, which offers a world of mind bending fun.
