I know its widely reported that this is one of the nicest beaches in the world, I would certainly not disagree with that, albeit I haven't see the rest. However, for me, I really think it would be far more enjoyable if you visited it on a relatively calm day. I don't even think you need it to be hugely... More

This is a fabulous beach on which to take photographs and capture something of the mood and character of the Harris coastline. I would rate it as a must see!

We stayed at a small B&B (sadly no longer in business) which had a gate that opened directly onto Luskentyre beach. There are miles of soft, sandy beach which seem to stretch into infinity. No other people on the beach, total peace and quiet, the only sound was that of the waves gently rolling to the shore and the occasional... More

Miles of paradise beach you can have on your own. The views are breathtaking and the pace of life is more acceptable than the rat race we all share. A must for everyone who loves peace and quiet and adventure.

Recently voted as the Best Island in Europe on Trip Advisor, it's not hard to see why Harris's beaches are just as widely regarded. Luskentyre isn't on a main road, isn't spoilt by littering humans or invaded by throngs of noisy families. Hopefully it never will be. There is loads to do without having to 'buy' anything - the sea,... More

We have been 3 times to this beach. Its is spectacular during the day, but then all the beaches in Harris are beautiful on a sunny day - we are Australian, so we know a thing or two about gorgeous beaches. However our best visit was going on a moon-lit night, in August with a torch in hand. Once on... More

A wonderful and immaculate beach. Quite remote but well worth a visit. The clear waters really look like caribbean beaches.

A huge, quiet beach of golden sands and turquoise sea. Hard to believe it's in Scotland, if its not on your bucket list then it should be!

We were there in October and still say it was the most beautiful beach ever, nobody but us and our breath was taken away. It was wimdy and a bit cold but the scene was unforgettable.
