This is a relatively scenic island but only really worth a visit if you want to cycle or hike as there is very little else to see or do aside from the two lighthouses. We really enjoyed the cycling as only a few minor slopes and very few cars. Bikes are plentiful and we paid 14 euro each for the day for good ones. However we enjoyed walking around Ile de Batz equally and this ile is much cheaper, easier and quicker to get to from Roscoff; it also has better beaches. Would only spend the money on going to Ousseant if it's a fine day otherwise would be pointless.

Landed at the small airfield here on a lovely August afternoon. After a 45 minute walk to the village, we found the tourist information office next to the church as pointed out by the helpful airport manager. Unfortunately just turning up in August and expecting to find accommodation for two people proved impossible so we didn't have long before we had to walk back to the airport and fly to Brest to find a hotel. But we did manage to cover a significant portion of the island on foot which seemed to be full of walkers and cyclists. Peaceful. Shame we couldn't spend more time here.

We stay a week-end on this island which is well preserve. We took the boat from Le Conquet. We made the first day a tour with a minibus. this gives you a good idea of the island and you got a lot of explanation (don't miss this tour). The next day we revisit the island by bicycles. The coast is very wild and teh lighthouses are located on unbelievable places. This is also a excellent place for bird watch during the migration (october)

For a quiet holiday this would be a good place to come. Lots of good cycling (and places to hire) and walks. Attractive coastlines and beaches. In Lampaul at least, eating options are limited. We flew in. Airport not attended from 1130 local to 1430 (long lunch). No fuel. Overnight parking is charged €9.

If you want to learn more about the soul of Brittany and you don't like mass tourism, this is your perfect stop. We stayed for two nights at the beautiful Pointe-Saint-Mathieu (The ruined abbey! The lighthouse! The view!), which is very near to Le Conquet. Then we took a boat (we made reservations) to the isle Ouessant and experienced the rough and beautiful sea. This is the furthest western point you can go when visiting Brittany. The isle is raw and a delight for people who like long walks near the seaside with dazzling views and rocky nature. Cars are not allowed to discover the isle's fauna and flora. But it's not too adventurous if you are not experienced (like me), and along the way you can discover authentic Breton houses, the smallest sheep in the world (a breed from the isle) and eat exquisite Breton pancakes. The isle is small, so one day might be enough to see a lot of it, but we could definitely spend there some more days. We took the last boat back to Pointe-Saint-Mathieu and saw a dolphin jumping out of the water several times. During our trip (nine days) we saw very much of Nord-Britanny but Ile d'Ouessant was definitely most memorable.
