Silversea Expedition Cruises À Ushant, Ile d'Ouessant

Ushant, Ile d'Ouessant

The Island of Ushant (Ouessant in French) is a geographical mega-star. Thirty kilometres (18 miles) offshore of Brittany, the island has Pointe de Pern, the westernmost point of France. The island’s name in the Breton language, is Enez Eusa meaning “the farthest Island”. Ushant and Land’s End in Cornwall mark the southern entrance of the English Channel; and Ushant helps mark the southern limit of the Celtic Sea, which extends between Ireland and France. Seafarers have used Ushant as a start and finish for yachts circumnavigating the world. View more

Rocks of the low island of Ushant have always posed a threat to ships. The names of some lost sailors and ships wrecked there are recorded in the cemetery at Lampaul, the main town. Six lighthouses assist the 50,000 vessels travelling past each year—the Phare de Créac’h has the most powerful light beam in Europe, with a reported reach of 69 kilometres (43 miles) in clear conditions. Lighthouses are built of rock blocks carved from the island’s base of pink granite. Le Stiff has an unusual name, maybe as the lighthouse has a strong double tower design. Island locals are proud of their sheep. The Ouessant is a small black breed that has evolved on Ushant. There are about 600 living on the island today with others sent to the mainland as heritage flocks. The human population is a little larger in number and is centred around the port of Lampaul, a base for local fishing vessels. At 10 kilometres (6 miles) in length, the island is easy to explore for lights and sheep.
