TO EACH HIS OWN BEACH

The beaches of Iroise

39 beaches of fine, white or golden sand, bordered by dunes or cliffs, dot the Iroise. Some are unmissable, others more secretive... Since the first therapeutic sea baths, the beach has been liberating and good for you! Ideal for lounging, swimming and playing in the sand, the beach is also the starting point for your water sports activities! Sailing, surfing and kitesurfing schools, as well as kayak and paddles for hire, promise you a relaxing time at sea.

The Molène Archipelago
Ready for the crossing?

All aboard for Molène and Ouessant

Around 15 kilometers from the coast, Molène is the main island of an archipelago of the same name, which includes some twenty islets. The nine main islets are Bannec, Balanec, Quéménes, Litiry, Trielen, Beniguet and Morgol.

Separated from the Molène archipelago by the Fromveur Passage, Ouessant is the largest and most westerly of the Finistère islands.

The area's particularly hostile environment makes it one of the best-lit regions in the world. There are no fewer than 10 lighthouses in the area, representing a priceless cultural heritage.
