Beautiful, natural place. A wonderful walk. Accessible (mostly) and great for swimming, lounging on the beach, looking at the flora and fauna and walking. The whole route without stop can take up to an hour but there are lots of places to stop and admire the view. Only loos are in the car park though and they aren’t particularly pleasant so go before you leave the house...

Lesser known than the sentier des douaniers and certianly much smaller/less busy, this an interesting walk to appreciate the pink granite rocks and unique geology in this area. We were staying in Ploumanach, and were able to drive up to a parking lot fairly close to the start of this route with a quiet, beautiful beach,. Lots of interesting things to see on the way.

A short but spectacular walk around this small island obviously very popular and good parking but probably not so easy to park and very busy in the main holiday season.

This hike takes you around the island, enjoying views of both sides of the bay, looking at boats. You can climb up and down big granite blocks. Always have you raincoat on hand.

The pink Granite rocks are utterly amazing. They are huge and so beautiful. We could have spent the whole day just admiring the beauty of this spot.

A unique masterpiece of nature this one is. Huge slabs of pink granite scattered around in most bizarre combinations amply topped up with scenic views of boats stranded in low tide among the nature of breathtaking beauty.

We were delighted with this beach and the pink granite rocks.
Despite other resorts being busy there was loads of room on the beach and there was a feeling of space.
The walks along the cliffs were easy and gave fantastic views.
With the tide out we were able to explore the little islands and rocks.
A great beach for small kids and even teens wanting to play Pokemon Go!!!

Go here to escape the throngs of touristy cities further east along the northern coast of France--the secluded paths and picturesque scenes are worth it.

Huge boulders of pink granite give way to fine sandy beaches that are as blue as the Mediterranean. So grab your camera and start clicking away.

Park at the parking all the way close to the start of the pseudo-island. Just keep going until there are signs saying to stop. You can't miss it, and it's free.

I have been visiting the Pink Granite Coast for many years, but somehow I had missed this little gem accessible by driving to Tregastel and then driving on to the northeastern-most point on the coastline. Renote is not really an island, but a little peninsula connected to the mainland by a narrow, sandy isthmus. You can drive to a parking area, and then the 'island' must be visited on foot, as it is a pedestrian-only zone. But don't let that keep you from making the walking loop, because it will be one of the nicest experiences you will ever have along Brittany's Pink Granite Coast. You can make the loop in about 45 minutes or less if you don't stop too often. But trust me, you'll want to climb on the rocks and take lots of photos because it is that great. Take a picnic lunch. There are benches in several locations, but you can also just find a spot on the boulders and have a wonderful meal surrounded by nature's magnificence.
