“A route exploring the Seven Coloured Earths of Chamarel offering a variety of views and tortoises to look at.”— Karl W
The trail begins at the northern end of the parking area where you'll pass a little guard both that will validate your tickets. Head straight northwest on the well-built trail to a series of intersections allowing you to visit the cafe and lookout. Then head around to the far (not that far) side, and so on.
There is a display with the Seven Colors shown in baskets that can be very helpful for discerning them in the actual dunes, otherwise you may think it should be called the four or five coloured earths. There is also a small pen containing large endemic tortoises on the eastern edge that is worth a quick visit.
