There's a large body of water nearby which is used to grow the "flowers". But once harvested they have to be kept dry or else they'll vanish.

Zooming out one more step you can see that the pinkish colour switches to "normal" water blue. I'm guessing this is due to seasonal changes. The pink, by the way, has nothing to do directly with the "flowers" but comes from bacteria in the water. The "flowers" are colourless, white or a very light grey.

You got it, Lui. The "flowers" are fleur de sel de Camargue (literally "flowers of salt" from Camargue), which is produced here and sold as a specialty all over Europe (the world??).

 

Here's a picture of the impressive city walls of Aigues-Mortes.

If huge storms are in the north of the ocean, then this underwater feature provide some of largest of its kind. Or so they say.

Nazare, Portugal: "In November 2011, Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara surfed a record-breaking giant wave: 78 feet (23.8 m) from trough to crest, at Nazaré.[3] On 28 January 2013, McNamara returned to the spot and successfully surfed a wave that appeared even larger, but is awaiting an official measurement. Such very high breaking waves form due to the presence of the underwater Nazaré Canyon. In August 2012, a freak wave killed a 5 year old British girl and her grandfather walking along Salgado Beach."
