Pink Granite Coast is a stretch of coastline in the Côtes d'Armor departement of northern Brittany, France. It stretches for more than thirty kilometres from Plestin-les-Grèves to Louannec, encompassing Trégastel.
It has become a popular tourist destination due to its unusually pink sands and rock formations. This type of pink rock can only be found in two other places in the world, Corsica and China.

Hello Monika ,
I don't know if you've chosen this kind of weather during your trip in Brittany (;)) to take the pictures , or if it was the opportunity , but I like the effect of the contrast betwen dark threatening skies and lit rocks . Obviously , the sea is not as emerald as it would be in perfect sunny days .
In this excellent composition , the view is beautiful an typical of the little wild beaches covered by seaweeds .

The pink rocks definitely enliven this dark scenery, a very special color. Great fringe of rocks on the right as well. A very attractive seascape, thanks for sharing.

Even on a cloudy day this still looks gorgeous. I love the warm cold color contrast between the reddish tinted rocks & the cyan hue of the sea. Good sharpness & well composed. The distant view of the coastline adds depth. Bon semaine!
