Here, a shark. There, a rabbit. And here is a turtle, a witch... On the pink Granite coast, we have fun personifying the whimsical silhouettes of the rocks that line the coastal path. Their color? Pink, of course. A beautiful coppery pink that radiates in the sun. From the island of Bréhat to Trébeurden, the pink Granite Coast unfolds its unusual curves facing a string of islands and islets, at the bend of coves of fine sand, sheltered by pines. In Port-Blanc and Plougrescant, the scenery changes with the tides. Pink on the coast, the granite turns grey by diving into the interior, along the estuaries of the Trieux and Jaudy rivers. The birds enjoy the colourful show. Off Perros-Guirec, the Sept-Îles National Nature Reserve is home to one of the largest seabird colonies, particularly puffins, gannets and cormorants.

The two pylons, shaped like upside-down Ys, are like two giants rooted in the ground, lookouts always keeping watch over the sea, strong and reliable. Still those cables, which look like fine strings in the distance, and the thin deck curved like the sail of a ship.It has in fact been designed like a plane in order to resist winds of more than 300 km/h (186 mph)! In the most terrible storms, it bravely comes through unscathed and soars like a motionless albatross, covering the river Seine with its long wings.
