La Vélomaritime®

The Vélomaritime® takes you between greenways and small secondary roads to the closest of the Pink Granite Coast. The relief is sometimes hilly, but globally accessible to all levels of practice. You will discover charming towns and villages such as Tréguier, Ploumanac’h or Lannion as well as many remarkable natural sites scattered all along the coast. Between pink rocks with sometimes evocative shapes, steep cliffs, wild moors and small beaches, you will be amazed!

The must-haves
Step 1

Paimpol - Tréguier

From Paimpol, you will cross the two large estuaries of the Trieux and the Jaudy to reach the small city of Tréguier. While crossing the peninsula, don’t miss the local link to a unique site in Europe: the Sillon de Talbert. Discover Lézardrieux with its beaumanoir style church and its marina. On the banks of the Jaudy, the remarkable gardens of Kerdalo in Trédarzec await you. Take the time to discover the city of character of Tréguier with its narrow streets, wood panelled houses, but also its cathedral and its cloister.

Step 2

From Tréguier to Perros-Guirec

From Tréguier, the historical capital of Trégor, you will have to go up the wooded slopes of the Jaudy estuary to reach a cultivated plateau that runs all the way to Perros-Guirec. The variants towards the coast are worth the effort they require: Plougrescant, Buguélès and its Tide Mill, the archipelago of Port Blanc, offer exceptional landscapes preserved from the crowds. The Saint François footbridge, an old tollgate which allowed to cross the estuary of the Guindy, today, it makes the happiness of the hikers on foot or in bicycle.

Step 3

From Perros-Guirec to Trébeurden

This splendid stage of the Tour de Manche by the pink cornice allows you to enjoy marine perspectives with many glimpses towards the beaches. At the sight of the creeks around the rocky point of Castel, it will be difficult to resist the call to swim. The only shadow to this postcard is that the stage is sportive because of some steep slopes. The charming Port of Ploumanac’h is coiled up in the bottom of the bay, sheltered from the wind and the sea.
Look also at the bottom of the port, at the entrance of the mysterious valley of Traouïeros, the tide mill of Trégastel. Discover in Kerguntuil, an imposing Dolmen whose upper slab weighs approximately 20 tons.
Finally, find the Menhir of Saint-Uzec, it exceeds 7 meters above the ground and would have been christianized in the 17th century. It is now surmounted by a cross and presents engravings, formerly painted, of symbols of the passion of Christ

Step 4

Trébeurden - Lannion

Direction to the flowery banks of the Leguer for this penultimate stage of the Tour de Manche in Costarmorican territory. From the cliff, there are many windows on the sea. Despite a steep slope in the Brélévenez district of Lannion, this stage is accessible to the whole family.
On the heights of the Goas Lagorn valley, you will discover a remarkable natural site with a wide variety of environments. A unique site to discover on foot, ideal for a lunch break.

Step 5

From Lannion to Plestin-Les-Grèves

This is the last stage of La Vélomaritime in Côtes d’Armor! As you leave Lannion, enjoy the view from the cliffs towards the bay of Saint-Michel-en-Grève before joining a section of the greenway in Ploumilliau. Before going along the bay, a detour to the port of Locquémeau by the cliffs of Trédrez is necessary. The cliffs of Trédrez extend over nearly 2 kilometers from the port of Locquémeau to the point of Beg ar Forn. They constitute one of the largest wild spaces of the Côtes d’Armor.
