The Pink Granite Coast (Perros-Guirec)
This geological feature extends over 10 km in the municipalities of Perros-Guirec, Trégastel, Pleumeur-Bodou and Trébeurden (cited from east to west). It forms an arc running east of Ploumanac'h, La Clarté (Perros-guirec commune), Renote Island, Coz-Porz, White strike (Trégastel commune) to Milliau Island ( municipality of Trébeurden) to the west, crossing the non-coastal part of Pleumeur-Bodou. Apart from its characteristic color, the coast is dotted with chaotic clusters whose flagship is the customs trail that leaves from the beach of Trestraou (Perros-Guirec) and ends at the Cove Saint-Guirec Ploumanac'h. Not far from the village of La Clarté, some pink granite quarries are still in operation. You can see the original pink granite before it is weathered.
There are three pink granite shores in the world, one in Brittany, one in Corsica and one in China, making it a popular holiday destination. The islands facing the coast (archipelago of Sept-Îles) are also populated by rare and protected species of birds which makes the canton of Perros-Guirec a tourist site ecotourism of national fame. The paradox is that only the "red" granites have been acclaimed, and only two sites on this coast (Ploumanac'h and Trébeurden), along which much more frequent "pink" granites, are found. powerless to attract the attention of the layman.
