The Ploumanac’h lighthouse (officially the Mean Ruz lighthouse) is an active lighthouse in Côtes-d’Armor, France, located in Perros-Guirec. The lighthouse is closed to the public.

The structure is composed of pink granite, and marks the entrance to the channel leading to the port of Ploumanac’h.

The first Ploumanac’h lighthouse dates from 1860. This was destroyed in 1944, and replaced by the current lighthouse in 1946. The present-day version was planned by architect Henry Auffret, and built by Martin et frère (a local construction company).
