Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Côte de Granit Rose or 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.(Wikipedia).
