Beautiful beach, vast expanse. The sand dunes are higher than houses - amazing! We've seen it in bright and grey weather and both are enjoyable. Turquoise sea and pristine sandy beach with a good view across to Taransay.

Breathtakingly beautiful beach, it was largely deserted when we visited it several times in October. There are car parking and toilet facilities. Not difficult to see why it is so highly rated as one of the best beaches in the world.

This was definitely a beautiful beach but there wasn't a lot of foreground interest besides the light on the shore waves for photographs at sunset. The beach was remarkably empty at sunset so we had a nice time photographing.

Walk along these beautiful sands breath in the wonderful air and relax. Take your shoes and socks off and paddle if you dare.

A beautiful beach on the west coast of Harris. It would rival any Caribbean beach. A must do if you visit Harris.

Our hosts at our little B&B on Harris recommended taking in the sights at Luskentyre Beach as part of our visit. We were not disappointed. Great beach which, coming from Australia, reminded us a little of home. No great surf to speak of but worth...More

Yes its probably true that the town isn't the most charismatic on the island but only because the rest is so scenic and Stornoway is the main port. How are you traveling
