The islands of Ushant and Molène

Out in the Iroise Sea, the island of Ushant fascinates with the beauty of its fields of heather and gorse, and also with its fauna. Easily accessible from the port at Le Conquet, the trip can be made in a day. The island is particularly famous for its breed of sheep, the smallest in the world, and used to be for its dwarf horses, now extinct. Several breeds of rare bird make landfall on Ushant during their migration, attracting many watchers.

A few kilometres away the landscapes of the Molène archipelago are a silent wonder to be contemplated. Surrounded by turquoise waters, churches and alleys contrast their stonework with wild, open plateaus above the sea. On the island of Sein all is peace amongst the low stone walls that line the walking trails. The museum of the sailor's shelter and the island lighthouse are the two main sights, not counting the spectacular sunsets to be admired from the beaches.
