A winding road leads from Case Noyale village to the coloured earths of Chamarel: an undulating landscape of different and contrasting shades of colours. The different shades of blue, green, red and yellow are apparently the result of the erosion of the volcanic ash. The site possesses a rare beauty. Much of the sand has been souvenired by locals. It is now sectioned off, but is not that impressive. Seven Coloured Earths (Q4115152) on Wikidata Seven Coloured Earths on Wikipedia
