“Gem of a beach!”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

Lovely golden sand in this sheltered bay on the north-west of Colonsay Island.
Stop-off here for some relaxation and watch the waves roll in!
Little car-park.

“Glorious - the colour of the sand is incredible”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Thought this might have been over-hyped but no...it's a stunner.The sand is almost apricot in colour and pristine.Turquoise water and lovely low green knolls for great vantage points on each side.Beautiful spot on a lovely island.

“Beautiful beach.”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Too me a couple hours to walk from Colonsay Hotel, going round the island ring road clockwise. Take a map, there are few signposts on the island. Beautiful big open sweep of sand, just gorgeous! There's parking nearby and benches. One of the places you really must visit on Colonsay (and there's no shortage of them, it's a lovely island).

“my favourite beach. anywhere”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Spent a couple of hours here on a dank Wednesday morning having day tripped across from Islay. Glorious sands, litter free, great place for a paddle. I like it almost as much on a poor weather day as in glorious sunshine. Gorgeous.

“World beating”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Nothing to dislike, world class and almost deserted. You'll remember your day here for a long time. Swim in the pools, run down the dunes, look out at the view. Don't tell the rest of the world.
