  • at the arrival of the boat, we took the purple taxi for a guided tour of the island. It is the best choice you could make. We alternated the taxi rides and walks, the island is beautiful and the comments are informative; It's a perfect visit to a first acquaintance with the lives of the ouessantais.

  • An island that has remained authentic, a bit wild, windswept, not "polluted" by tourism. Browse by bike, to rent in the landing, possibly, but better rent bikes in the village, and leave them at the pier. rental for 24 hours is possible, and not expensive. (Beware, it's the flat). The must, a bike ride, at the beginning of the night, under the flagship of the founded ' ch, when it starts to light up. However, staying authentic has its downside. Few restaurants, with days of closed in high season (July), in the village and at the pier, it's surprising. Not that the weekly rest is prohibited, but there are many young people who would like to work in the summer, I think... Suddenly, little restaurants, and poor quality. Too bad.
