Magical

How can one describe such an awesome beach ? 'Magical' is the word I think best describes Luskentyre beach.

Breathtakingly beautiful with place to look over the vista, not wheelchair accessible. Birdwatchers paradise!

The estuary, sand dunes and machair made this a magical place with a new vista around each corner as one drove along the lochside.

Deserves the glowing reviews however plenty of other beaches with great character and attractions. Surfing on Scarista Beach and walk from Huisinis to beach overlooking Scarp was a particular highlight. Wild and stunning.

Quite simply one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Really nothing more to say other than: visit it. Soon.

Miles of beautiful sand and turquoise see. Quiet and peaceful even in the height of summer. Easy access. Plenty space for the kids to run around while mum and dad enjoy quiet contemplation.

Scarista and Luskentyre, seen following the Golden Road, appear in front of your eyes as a dream landscape. Along the road, past each bend you meet beautiful sight of lochs, pools, cliffs, islands, small beaches, and when you think you've seen the most beautiful places in Harris Island, then Scarista appears and you can't believe your eyes. It's sheer size... More

Visited Isle of Harris in June 2015 and it is one of the best places to visit if you are into wildlife, natural beauty, untouched beaches and long walks. This beach can be accessed by parking at the School football ground and then walking through the machair and sand dunes. This is a beautiful place and a long long beach.... More

I'm quite fussy about my Scottish beaches. The beaches of Harris are well-known and generally regarded as the best in the country. I don't quite agree with that, generally, but Luskentyre certainly is among my favourite Scottish beaches. The surrounding views are beautiful, the sand is a lovely, soft texture that is easy and fun to walk and play in... More
