Pink granite coast

On a few kilometers of the northern Brittany coastline, a combination of geological hazards has given the rocks a reddish hue. Additionally, erosion has given the rocks strange shapes and litteraly left large boulders resting on one another, sometimes on a few centimeters only. This area encompasses the towns of Ploumanach, Perros Guirec,Tregastel and Trebeurden.
The limits of this geological feature are very well marked and can easily be seen from the sea.
