Ile d'Ouessant, Brittany

4.5
#10 of 36 in Nature in Brittany
Board a passenger ferry or plane and go to Ile d'Ouessant, the only place in Brittany (Bretagne) that has a different name in English: "Ushant." This island has a maritime past as a fishing community and as a key landmark of the Channel Islands. Interestingly, circumnavigations of the globe usually start and finish between Ushant and Lizard Point. Watch for the Créac'h lighthouse that is reputedly the most powerful in the world. Visit the island to find out why many authors have made literary references to the island's distinct cultural heritage. Plan a Porspoder trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • C is the 2iem time staying at Ouessant, we stayed 2 days, happiness! For the commented Island tour take the purple Taxi, you will be accompanied by Patricia or Dom who will make you discover their island and its history with smile and kindness, but if you prefer to be only rent a bicycle (electric for less d effort) and enjoy t e the aspects that this island can give you will not be disappointed and want that something come back!

  • We stayed 4 days at Ouessant, without rent bike to enjoy hiking. The landscapes are beautiful and untouched, the Ocean air is cool and crisp, only sometimes disturbed by some local cars. There is no agriculture and little fishing, which really gives a personality to share at Ouessant.

  • the island is not an "attraction" but an unforgettable discovery! to be in tune with the Islanders to show modesty and interest for this country at the end of the world... let's do it once and we dream to go back!
