Hormoz Island is one of the few places in Iran where every few hundred meters you move, the texture of the earth and the shape and designs of the surrounding nature become different or in a different color.
Hormoz Island should be called a colored island because the color of the soil, land and mountains in any part of the island become varied to red, orange, yellow, white and black.
The Red Soil and Red Coast mines are located on the southern coast of the island of Hormuz. The Red Soil mine has become like a deep valley due to the intensity of its soil harvest (for use in the ceramics industry or for export to other countries).
The Red Coast in the south of Hormoz Island is one of the most visited places on the island. The whole large beach is red in color, and even this redness can be seen in some of the waters near the beach.
The red soil of Hormoz, which the locals call Gelak, is used as a spice in cooking.
