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.
