Hiking on the trail of customs in Perros-Guirec

A very nice hike to admire the coast of granite rose in Northern Brittany.

A beautiful, pleasant and easy hike on the "sentier des douaniers" - trail of custom. Certainly one of the most beautiful footpaths along the coast of France. The coast was called "pink coast" due to the colours of the rocks.

The site is very touristy and very well maintained. This walk is not a loop you have to come-back on the same path. It's doesn't matter because the site completely changes its appearance between high tide and low tide. Don't miss it!
