Outer Hebrides: Luskentyre Sands Beach

Luskentyre Sands Beach has been repeatedly voted UK’s best beach, and one of the top beaches in the world., surpassing many in Southern Europe and Caribbean. It’s so out of place here in the inhospitable, cold, rainy, and windy Hebrides – it looks more like it has been taken off a brochure of South Pacific paradise islands. Stunning expanses of ultra white sands juxtaposed against azure-green-blue waters are just surreal, even on a rainy day. The beaches are rarely crowded even in perfect weather, the water is cold, the wind is ever present.
