    Amazing Beach
    An amazing beach with sensational sand and turquoise sea. Quite a long drive with single track roads but well worth the effort. However parking at the official site is very limited especially if the weather is great. A helpful warden was there. We couldn’t park our Campervan so left and parked alongside a beautiful cemetery. There was a path down to the beach. An amazing vista, which was great for walking our dogs. Great photo opportunity too.

    I'm not a beach person and I loved it.
    You've never seen water such a turquoise color and multiple shades of turquoise. Beatiful white sands in front and mountains behind and beside. Outstanding scenery and breathtakingly beautiful. Be sure to climb to the top of the sand dunes to try to get some pictures of the different colors of the water from more of an aerial view. You could also climb some of the adjacent mountain for similar views. Well worth a stop on your trip. Parking lot is chaos, but the view is worth it when you see it.

    Parking at Luskentyre Beach
    We stayed next to the beach on a designated motorhome parking place (£5 to pay overnight - proceeds go to West Harris community Trust). It felt great to be supporting the local community. We ate at the local Tala Na Mara (brilliant).

Lovely visit here with a walk along the beach, even saw the highland cows.
Would recommend a stop.
There are toilets, although no other amenities.

I was fortunate enough to have the time to get over from Glasgow when there was a decent spell of weather over in the Outer Hebridies, I was over 2 years ago for a charity walk of the hebridean way but was on a tight schedule to get back home & I never managed to get to Luskentyre, so I was really looking forward to going there..I wild camped on hill out the way, overlooking the beach, the views were out of this world & I was treated to a spectacular sunset, the next morning I packed up & headed down the hill and along the beach, i had it to myself, it was one of the best experiences of my life, it was heavenly..a dream come true, a memory I'll cherish for the rest of my life

A truly amazing massive beach with gorgeous views of mountains. The golden sand is 100% perfect so unbelievably clean and beautiful.

This beach is stunning - miles of white sand to walk & a beautiful sunset to enjoy.
We found it such a restful, peaceful, still place to visit.

What visitors are not being told is that the only parking available was actually intended for legitimate cemetery users. Part of the unique culture of the islands demands peace and respect around cemeteries. Shamefully, tourists are not even being told that there is a cemetery adjacent to the beach, now the disrespectful behaviour of tourists is upsetting bereaved locals. Luskentyre is beautiful but it has a deeply held meaning for islanders as their families final resting place. The cemetery car park is not for beach users to abuse as a camp site, to hold barbecues and gatherings, a changing area (have some dignity) and the fence is not for drying clothes on. It is a place for quiet contemplation and if you can't behave with decency and dignity then stay away.

Best place on Earth, my forebears come from Harris and I have no idea why they ever wanted to leave such a beautiful location. It is an extremely beautiful area to visit. 💞😘💞

Luskentyre gets voted among the top 3 beaches in the UK, but I've yet to see a more spectacular beach in all our travels across the world. The road to Luskentyre itself is glorious, so we knew a real treat was in store when we arrived. Limited parking spots nearby. The water is a glittering turquoise with the most pristine sands anywhere. It was impossible to leave.
