If there is a glimpse of sunshine in the sky and the tide is not fully in, then I defy anyone who comes over the hill towards Luskentyre not to gasp at it's beauty the first and every time they see the large bay and orange red sand. Rated as one of the top beaches in the world I am... More

Went for an early morning walk along the beach with miles of beautiful white sand. We had the beach to ourselves at 10 am in the morning. Most be the only place in the world where such a wonderful beach is available just for you.

Long white sandy beach, with a beautiful outlook, clear blue seas and the added elements of the unpredictable winds and the joy of a lack of other visitors... a truly wonderful beach, on a stunningly beautiful island, populated by friendly, open, helpful people. Heading back again in Aug and cannot wait.

Miles of unspoiled golden sand, turquoise sea, sand dunes, sun (sometimes). Lovely. TripAdvisor is asking that I add more details but I think I've said it all.

What a fantastic beach! The colours were amazing even on a grey day. The sand is golden and smooth, with waves turquoise-it looked like the Caribbean without the heat!

All the photos and the hype about this beach are more than true! Despite the chilled air (and the water) you feel like you've been whisked away to a tropical island! That is, until you look about and take in the beauty of the surrounding hills and realize that you are in majestic Scotland in all her glory! This beach... More

Luskentyre beach is one of the most stunning beaches we had ever seen. It is huge and the colours of the clear sea are beautiful. We were lucky to visit on a very sunny and warm day, which added to the enjoyment.

Thank junejohnson8
