The Pink Granite Coast – Pointe du Château – Lannion
Considered as one of the most beautiful coasts of France, the Pink Granite Coast offers a unique landscape of granite chaos with strange shapes resulting from wind and sea erosion over thousands of years. From the wild site of Le Gouffre to the bay of Lannion, the customs officers’ path surprises by the contrast of colours where you can find the whole range of a cleanly Breton palette.
You will certainly appreciate the hike in the heart of the rocky chaos with astonishing shapes and the granite landscape, emblem of Brittany, which from grey to pink asserts a unique setting in the world.
