Molene is a tiny island which forms part of a small archipelago in the regional natural park of Armorica, in Finistere. Together with the neighbouring island of Ouessant, the archipelago was classified in 1989 as a World Nature Reserve by Unesco.


Molene has one small town - called, unsurprisingly, Molene. The rest of its islands were inhabited until the end of the Second World War by farmers who just managed to scrape a living from the harsh landscape. Nowadays much of the economy of the island is based on farming the laminaria seaweeds which are common in the shallow waters of the archipelago.
