  • Very nice walk on the path where you can see the pink rocks of the region. Beautiful scenery overlooking the sea.  more »
  • The lighthouse of Ploumanach, said "Mean Ruz Lighthouse" (which means red stone in breton), indicates the entrance to the port and is fully automated. The building is in the form of a pyramidal tower of quadrangular (but inside cylindrical) form of 15 meters high, set on and in the middle of the famous granitic rocks to the tormented forms of the site. It amounts to 26 meters over the sea level, and to respect the environment, was built in pink granite. It has a platform that supports the fire at its upper end. Its scope by clear night is about 20 kilometers. It is accessed by a stone bridge, and as the path of the Customs officers through a private property, it is now necessary to get there, to get around it. Access is difficult because the path is rugged. The current lighthouse was put in service in 1948. 1 Lighthouse built in 1860, was destroyed by the Germans in 1944. Management and animation of the site (Moors and rocks) are assigned to the "shore House" whose premises are not far from the lighthouse, on the path of the Customs officers. Periodically there are carried out exhibitions. To get to the lighthouse, the easiest way is to follow the path of the (marked) customs that leaves from the port of Ploumanach. The visit of the location of the Lighthouse is only one of the elements of the discovery of the magnificent site of Ploumanach. See for more comments and photos, on Tripadvisor: "The great naturalness of Ploumanach Site".

  • Spectacular scenery, incredible formations of pink granite blocks. Well landscaped paths, which are mostly accessible. Lots of people but it is the Côte de granite of course here on the road, rose at Ploumanac'h ' h is indeed a must for Brittany-travelers. There are toilets in the parking lot, catering should you in the car have (or in the near village drive).

  • Stunning views. Unique nature pictures. Very nice place to walk and swim. One dissapointing thing - lots of private villas around.
  • Great place for exploring among the granite in winter or summer
  • Very beautiful rocky coast with huge pinkish boulders. Wel walked a stretch of the coast path, from Ploumanac'h beach to the other side of the cape.
  • Must see if you are in the region!
  • Wonderful place especially at the sunset
