The islands at the edge of the world

5 islands and archipelagos around Finistère

Carte des îles du Finistère

The closest island, Île de Batz, famously has its own microclimate. Its spring vegetables are particularly renowned.

Ouessant, dominated by its lighthouse, is the largest of Finistère’s islands. Its speciality? Lamb ragoût that’s cooked slowly packed under clumps of turf!

Molène and its archipelago are at the heart of the Iroise Natural Marine Park. Its own, must-try local speciality is sausage smoked in seaweed.

Île de Sein, facing the Pointe du Raz, is paradise for seafood fans, thanks to its seabass and lobster.

Around the Glénan Archipelago and its lagoon, you can try your hand at watersports thanks to "Les Glénans", the largest sailing school in Europe.
