The path along the coast, the sentier douanier, at Ploumanac’h is considered as one of the most impressive, for a good reason. It is part of the Côte de granit rose , known for its rock formations of pink granite. Erosion by the sea, wind and other elements have created amazing rocks, which sometimes appear to be placed randomly by a playing giant toddler.

Ploumanac’h is a small fisher village, now quite touristique, at least in the summer season. But the walk along the coast let you quickly forget that part – though you will not be alone in August. The pink granite, late summer vegetation of the heathland, the deep blue sea, sometimes adorned by a white crown when crashing against the rocks – it is a feast for the eyes.

The lighthouse is not alone – he has a villa and a small chapel as neighbors.

The rocks inspire your imagination. This lying giant has just breathed out and released a motor and sailing boat.

And another giant mask:
