Rochester Falls is located in Savanne District, a few kilometres from the town of Souillac. Set amidst rugged and pristine landscape, it is a must-visit attraction in Mauritius. The ten metres long waterfalls rushing down the rocky bed look perfect for a refreshing dip or a small picnic with loved ones. It is ideal for relaxation and reconnecting with nature at its enchanting glory.
The thick foamy layers of water look contrasting to the emerald green hues of the surrounding. The dramatic cliff encircling the Rochester Falls is wild and pristine. The local people can often be seen diving into the freshwater pool and having a good time.
However, it is not recommended for tourists. Rochester Falls is not as busy as other tourist attractions in Mauritius and allow you to soak up the scenic views all by yourself. There are two paths that lead to Rochester Falls. One of the paths takes visitors on top of the waterfall while the other goes straight to the pool.
Rochester Falls has a history dating back to the colonial era. It was named after the 19th century novel ‘Jane Eyre’ by Charlotte.
Rochester Falls has earned accolades for being the widest waterfall in Mauritius. It is also popular for the rectangular formations that are a result of the water gushing with full force against the rugged cliff. The exemplary view of the landscape backed by the foamy, clear water looks straight out of the postcard.
