I have been fortunate to have visited some iconic beaches on my travels, but this is simply the best of the lot! Quiet, tranquil, huge, empty and unspoilt are a few of the words I would use to describe it. For the best experience, get there early and you may get it all to yourself :-)

That's truly what I felt looking once again over the familiar creamy sands in the sunshine from our wild camp above the beach.There is a quality of light and colour here that is simply stunning. It's the interplay of green hills dotted with pink rock (Lewisian Gneiss, some of the oldest in the world); the pale green sea, the emerald... More

Who would have thought that Scotland would be famous for its beaches? Luskentyre has to be one of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in the world. It's indeed fortunate that it it is where it is. If it was more accessible, there would be a fun fair, amusement arcades, rides, hotels, and all the things that go along with... More

You need to check the tides and weather to get the best effect miles of white sand great for a long walk in stunning scenery if you time it right!

I travel the world for work and leisure and Harris is my favourite place on the planet. Luskentyre beach is without doubt a breath taking location that you can visit rain or shine and still come away thinking WOW!

We love Luskentyre, it's no surprise that it's one of the most painted and photographed places in the world as it is simply astounding in both beauty and scale. It will always be one of my most favourite places in the world. There is a carpark and loos at the end of the long windy road, and a handy burn... More

This beach is just beautiful, it has the whitest sand and crystal clear water, it is protected from the weather rolling in of the ocean by the island of Taransay so the waves are perfect for paddling. The vast beach is backed by the highest dunes, a simply stunning place to be.

Beautiful and vast white sands. Plenty of space due to the size so would not feel overcrowded. The only down side was the smell at the toilets in the parking area.

Like in the advert. If Carlsberg done beaches........ Took lots of photos but nothing gives you the experience like being there. White sand, clear blue/green water. Tranquillity. Perfect place to be. Great little gallery on the road going south where we stopped for tea and scones.
