Located in Brittany on the Côte de Granit Rose, a remarkable coast of deformed and water-sculpted pink rocks. It is the entrance of the port of Ploumanac'h. The first lighthouse there was built in 1860 but it was destroyed in 1944. The current lighthouse replaced it in 1945. The name Mean Ruz comes from Men Ruz, which means pink granite in Briton.
