The Pink Granite Coast – Pointe du Château – Lannion

A 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.

Hiking in freedom – Duration of 7 days – Departure from March to October according to your availability.

The Pink Granite Coast – Pointe du Château – Lannionprogram

Day 1

Lannion Installation in Lannion. A beautiful stroll through the streets and alleys of Lannion will bear witness to the rich past of this town whose few half-timbered houses still reflect this history.

Day 2

Pointe du Château – Trestel (19 km) Transfer from Lannion to the site of the “Gouffre” and its famous little house protected by two unshakeable rock walls. In the distance, the Seven Islands archipelago is revealed. Before the glare of the pink rocks, here the granite is rough. The path crosses a tangle of peninsulas where the limits of the sea and the land are indistinct. The first houses of Port-Blanc appear discreet, just like the surprising Notre Dame chapel buried under the dune.

Day 3

Trestel – Ploumanac’h (20 km) The contrast with the day before is amazing. Shortly after the port of Perros-Guirec and the beach of Trestraou, the rocks are pink and their shapes are as soft as anodine meteors. On the beach of Saint-Guirec, a small oratory testifies to the authentic Breton syncretism. The GR 34 guides your steps towards Ploumanac’h and its tidal mill, a model of a small port naturally sheltered from the swell and storms.

Day 4

Ploumanac’h – Kerenoc (19 km) The granite remains pink until Trégastel and Renote Island where the chaos of the rocks enchants much more than it frightens. Nature, always more hospitable, welcomes hikers along beaches that are first pink like the rocks and then very white, loaded with quartz, when arriving on the peninsula of Landrellec. The multiple shades of a lagoon blue transport your gaze to the island Grande to be discovered tomorrow.

Day 5

Kerenoc – Trébeurden (22 km) From the golf course, where it is interesting to see the covered alley and the dolmen facing the sea, you reach the Renaissance church of Saint-Samson, then the Christianized menhir of Saint Uzec. The nearby Ile Grande, which you reach by a path that crosses the foreshore, invites you to visit its ornithological center. To the north, the pebbles and sand offer an alternation of beaches where the dunes shelter you from the wind.

Day 6

Trebeurden – Lannion (18 km) 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. The rich half-timbered houses bear witness to the flourishing past of this city which, in the 20th century, adapted to become the Mecca of telecommunications in France.

Day 7
