words cannot describe the stunning beauty of this beach with the backdrop of hills and crystal clear sea. We visited in November with sun shining and total isolation.

I have the privilege of driving past this beach regularly but only really appreciate it when I take family and friends there and see their faces. It is like a tropical island beach. The view is enhanced by the island of Taransay in the distance. Well worth a visit.

Despite wearing our heavy jackets on a cold Scottish day if looked like we'd landed in the Caribbean. Beautiful golden sands, clear blue water and plenty of rock pools to explore. A must on a visit to the Outer Hebrides. About 30 minutes drive from the Tarbet ferry dock.

White sands stretching for miles and very few people. Just stunning and beautiful. Clear blue waters. My only dislike was that I didn't have enough time to spend longer here!

Years ago, i heard tell that Luskentyre was the most beautiful beach in the world. A big claim, I thought. However, having now seen it for myself I certainly won't argue...... It is stunning. The only place on the island we have visited more than once in our short week here. MUST MUST MUST!

There are many amazing beaches on Lewis and Harris. This is one of the most beautiful. I've been on beaches all round the world: Hawaii, French Polynesia, Australia, South East Asia, South Africa and this must be the most beautiful I've seen..especially if the sun is out. But I'm not sure why I'm reviewing it...I want it to remain as... More

On arriving on Harris our first port of call was Luskentyre Beach. Wow! I've never seen such a vast beach with sand so golden and waters so clear with stunning views of Taransay. It was beautiful. Could it get any better? Personally I think yes. Not taking anything away from Luskentyre - but try Scarista beach too.

It's hard to describe how it feels to find your way through the dunes onto this magnificent beach and then enjoy a peaceful walk on the sands. It was what I was searching for.
