Côte de Granit Rose - Brittany

The Côte de Granit Rose (pink granite coast) is located in the Côtes d'Armor department of Brittany. It stretches for more than thirty kilometres from Plestin-les-Grèves to Louannec and is one of the most outstanding coastlines in Europe. This special pink rock is very rare and can only be found in two other places in the world, Corsica and China.

Pink granite rocks formed more than 200 million years ago, have been shaped overtime by the wind, salt, ice and rain. The rock formations stretch for more than 15 kilometres between Trébeurden and Perros-Guirec.

With its beautiful blue sea and safe sandy beaches, this area of Brittany is a pradise for couples and families.
