Visit Tregastel (Brittany, France)
Tregastel is a small seaside village on the scenic Coast of Granite Rose of northern Brittany.
The village has some lovely architecture and a pleasant beach - the Quay St Ann. A notable building in the village is an interesting small church which inside has a wooden ceiling resembling an upturned boat - very fitting for a seaside church. On the shore be sure to take a look at the tidal mill, an eco-friendly mill dating from the early 18th century.
It is for the natural scenery that visitors are attracted to Tregastel - there are several beaches close to hand, and the contrast between the pink granite boulders and islets, the shimmering blue of the sea and the yellow of the beach combine to create a very lovely setting.
The main beach is just slightly up the coast and makes Tregastel particularly worth a visit. Called Tregastel Plage it is one of the loveliest in the area with great outcrops of the pink granite rocks emerging from the water. The beach itself is long and sandy.

A coastal walk - the Sentier des Douaniers - passes by Tregastel Plage and is an excellent walk to see more of the lovely pink granite coast, as well as the countryside.
You have more chances to appreciate the natural environment if you take one of the organised boat trips around the group of islands just off the coast called the 'archipelago of seven islands' - bring your binocular, this is the largest bird sanctuary in France.
Still with nature but closer to Tregastel is the sea world aquarium, always popular with children (and a good way to get them out of the sunshine for a while!)
