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 sugarcane fields until you reach a water pumping station at the end of a narrow lane.

HIKING EAU BLEUE WATERFALL MAURITIUS
Take the path opposite the water pumping station which is found 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! It’s definitely one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Mauritius!
There’s 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 sugarcane fields on the right side of the road. You can leave your car here and then 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’s 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 aren’t quite easy to reach. Head towards the main road and walk for about 300 meters and then turn left along a little dirt track in between the sugarcane fields.
From there, you’ll need to walk for about 150 meters while keeping an eye on the river bank on the left until you find a path going down to the third and fourth waterfalls. Just be careful around here since at some point you will have to jump across the river.

To get to the fifth waterfall, head back up to the sugarcane fields and continue along the trail until you reach the top part of the last waterfall. Head down and 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 if you want to have the waterfall all to yourself.
Here, you’ll usually find people jumping from the trees or right above the waterfall.
Important note: If you’re not an experienced swimmer, you should avoid jumping from the top of the waterfalls. The pools are full of rocks and jumping in without checking the water depth can be dangerous. Please use common sense to ensure your safety at all times.
