HOW TO GET TO EAU BLEUE WATERFALL MAURITIUS?
Eau Bleue Waterfall is located in the village of Cluny, in the southeast region of Mauritius. The drive takes about 45 minutes from Port Louis, one hour from Grand Bay or 15 minutes from Mahebourg. As you get closer, you’ll be driving in between sugar cane fields until you reach a water pumping station at the end of a narrow lane.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT EAU BLEUE WATERFALL MAURITIUS
Take the path opposite the water pumping station on the right side of the road. It only takes a few minutes to reach the base of the waterfall. Stare in awe at the twin waterfalls and make sure you swim in the refreshing water!
There is another path on the left side of the road if you want to get a view of the waterfall from above.
The second waterfall at Eau Bleue can be found by either walking along the main road or driving to a small clearing in between the sugar cane fields on the right side of the road. You can leave your car here and make your way down.
The hike to the second waterfall is a little more challenging but still accessible. Keep in mind that if it hasn’t been raining recently the waterfall will be completely dry.
There is also another section along the river bank where you can soak in between the smaller streams.
WATERFALLS 3 AND 4
These are less visited since they are not quite easy to reach. Head back to the sugar cane fields and walk about 150 meters while keeping an eye on the river bank on the left until you find a path going down to the third waterfall. Be careful around here since at some point you will have to cross the river.
The fifth waterfall can be found by driving further down the main road. The start of the trail is located on the left, in between the sugar cane fields, just above the last waterfall. Walk for about 100 meters in the opposite direction of the river flow and you should easily reach the waterfall.
The sixth and final waterfall at Eau Bleue is easy to reach and takes less than a few minutes to hike down. This one is more popular, so the best time to visit is during the early hours to get the waterfall all to yourself.
Here, you will usually find locals jumping from the trees or right above the waterfall.
