Our newsThe Pink Granite Coast

Here you are at the heart of the Pink Granite Coast. Staying at our hotel in Ploumanac’h will let you admire it in all its splendour and explore it at any moment, particularly on foot along the GR34 trail, the famous “Sentier des Douaniers” (Custom Officers’ Path), dotted with numerous places of historic and maritime heritage.

Stretching from Perros-Guirec to Trébeurden in the north of the historical Trégor area, the Pink Granite Coast is a protected natural site brimming with exceptional beauty, grandiose landscapes where land and sea are dotted with pink granite forms sculpted by the wind and waves over the course of thousands of years. The renowned granite, pink yet sometimes more a shade of red, is astounding. The rocks are remarkable for the polished look of their surfaces, a result of the combination of three minerals: mica, which gives it its black notes; feldspar, which gives it its pink colour; and quartz, which gives it its solidity. The pink granite boasts a unique character as it only exists in three locations worldwide: Corsica, China, and here in Ploumanac’h.

Come and explore the Pink Granite Coast with its 40 places of interest (free mobile app available) signposted by markers and panels, including magical viewing points, heritage sites, and megaliths. Plus, as evening draws in, prepare to watch a true cavalcade of colour.
