The Pink Granite Coast – Pointe du Château – Lannion
A splendid stay at the northern tip of Brittany by the customs path n°5
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.
This itinerary is suitable for walkers who love wide open spaces and sea views: marked path, quality accommodation, luggage transport and information about the region. Everything is planned so that you can make the most of the region and its beauties.

From the estuary of the Léguer to Lannion, a new landscape, not quite terrestrial and no longer really marine: a towpath which, before they were equipped with engines, allowed boats arriving from the open sea, pulled by horses, to reach the commercial city of Lannion.
