The commune of Ploumanac’h in Côtes d’Armor Breton

Well the intended trip was to reach this town of Ploumanac’h as we have seen on TV it was named the favorite town of the French , this was a Survey contest on France FR2 television voted by the French. So , in addition , one of my colleagues at work is a native of the area ,so more power for us to check it out.

The tourist office is on the city the village belongs to at Perros Guirec (wait for next post).

And you see the story of the pink granite blocks here;

We came following the D768  to the N12 then hooking up to Lannion again on the D767 ,and once pass it taking the D788 into the Ploumanac’h borough.

This borough or village is only about 3kms from Perros Guirec, and you can use the bus 15 coming from Lannion into Perros Guirec and Ploumanac’h. Coming to the village you see the parc des sculptures, and the harbor  or Port ,one of the most protected in all of Brittany.  You have the windmill or Moulin of Traouiero. There is a small beach call Bastille between the beach of Saint Guirec and the harbor of Ploumanac’h.

It has a better beach or plage de Saint Guirec with wonderful hôtels and restaurants all around it, plenty of parking,and it was where we parked.

Another thing to see is the Chapelle Saint-Guirec from the 16C and restored in the 18C.  The lighthouse or phare de Ploumanac’h or better  phare de Mean Ruz originally from 1860 ,destroyed in 1944 and rebuilt in 1945! From this lighthouse you can see nicely the castle of Costaérés , and islands or île Renote as well as the Sept-îles.

The best part and the one we walk all over is on the pointe du Skewell that follows on the Sentier des Douaniers. Lastly ,on to the Oratory of Saint Guirec, done on a rock in the bottom of the Anse Saint Guirec.

Enjoy the pictures, it is heaven.We should be back in summertime. Cheers
