Gourmet walk

A “sweet/malted/sea scented” escapade on the Pink Granite Coast

All year long

Oysters, whisky and “palmier” cookies! The Pink Granite Coast has many tasty surprises in store. Enjoy them directly at the oyster farm in Trébeurden, in one of the oldest distilleries in France in Lannion or as you walk on the coastal path, between Perros-Guirec and Ploumanac’h.

01 Step 01

10am – Enjoy a caramelised “palm tree”

Start your day on a sweet note. The reputation of “Palmiers de Trélevern”, a speciality of the André bakery, has gone far beyond the frontiers of this peaceful village on the Pink Granite Coast. You’ll love their caramelised puff pastry. A handy hint? Remember to reserve one or two bags. Sold by the weight, these biscuits sell like hot cakes!

02 Step 02

10:30am – A walk through the pink granite rocks

Take the “Sentier des Douaniers” path between Perros-Guirec and Ploumanac’h lighthouse. All along the way, admire the spectacular chaos of unusually shaped pink granite blocks. In the morning, with the sun warming your back, the pink hue on the coast is even stronger!

3pm – See what goes on behind the scenes at Distillerie Warenghem in Lannion

Enter the Warenghem distillery in Lannion and breathe in the scent of malted barley. This is one of the oldest distilleries in the country and the pioneer of French whisky. Discover how Amorik, the company’s flagship product, is made. Your guide will lead you from the stills (made of copper, like in the Scottish distilleries) to the oak barrels of Brittany. This is where the “single malt” lies for many years. There is a little tasting session at the end of the tour.

05 Step 05

6pm – Time for oysters facing the sea and Ile-Grande

Before dinner, head to l’Atelier de l’huître, in the protected bay of Toëno, at the exit of Trébeurden. Facing the sea, taste the Ile-grandaise Pacific oysters with a very typical taste due to the local plankton. Try the local flat oyster too, with subtle notes of hazelnut and woody aromas. To enjoy with a good white wine. Are you convinced? Don’t leave without some!
