Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    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.

    Hebridean beaches are Beautiful , the Island 🏝️ of Harris has a number of fabulous beaches, clean white broad, long stretches of sands and crystals clear blue waters. The island 🏝️ of North Uist, accessible from here by ferryboat (that takes cars, vans, lorries, etc.) Apparently has, on its uppermost North West, the now King Charles' favourite beach in all the Whole Wide World 🌎🌍 !

    Coast and beach are so beautiful! And quiet with very few people around! Long access road but with passing places.

    Stunning scenery of rocky cliffs, amazing turquoise water, white sands and sea stacks. All of my favorites in one place. Breathtakingly beautiful for anyone that likes rocky/cliff scenery. Climb around for different viewpoints. We climbed up the left side coming in. It was a hike, but well worth the view. There is a huge lily pond adjacent, but it wasn't blooming when we went. Time it right and you'll see both.

    A wild and rocky gem ! Not frequented by tourists, we were the only ones there. Dont forget to drive a little further to the view point for the majestic cliffs and sea stacks.

    There is plenty of parking. There is a reasonably short walk down to the beach. It is dog friendly. There is white sand and turquoise seas. The views are amazing, a photographer’s paradise. There was some mist on one day we visited and it was ethereal. There is a peaceful cemetery nearby, what a wonderful site.

    Stunning beach with a deep inlet of water suitable for swimming at low tide, breath taking views to the mountains across the bay

    Superb unspoilt beach on the west coast of Lewis, well worth a visit. Also, don't miss the nearby Dalbeg beach.

    Gorgeous soft sand, crystal waters and sheltered. I'm a first time kayaker who went with husband (he's much more experienced). Was gentle but still some waves. Car park small only about 10 cars can park. Toilets there drinking water available from hose and able to wash off sand from wet suits. Next the caravan park so lots of families but was nothing like crowded beaches on mainland - here if there's more than 10 people the locals call it 'packed'. Rubbish bins which is great too. If had been a warm day a definite for spending day with a book, kayak, swimming and picnic

    This is the last beach (almost at road end) on the road north along the east coast of Lewis, is one of the last we visited on our Outer Hebrides holiday, and is one of our favourites. Probably (hopefully!) too far out on a limb for tourist buses, you may well have it to yourselves, as we did. The highlight is the group of sea stacks at the southern end. Parking is good - and don't miss the short walk further along the road to the "Bridge to Nowhere" (and the actual road end!)

    Beauty of a beach for strolling.
    Why would anyone go swimming here when it obviously shelves steeply and is made more difficult and even treacherous again when windy and lashed with large waves? It defies common sense and suggests a complete lack of experience of wild swimming and possible dangers that have to be assessed.

    The tragic fatality of a photographer occurred from the rocks not the sand.
    The sea everywhere is potentially dangerous and windy conditions make it more so!

    I love the stroll out along the beach, colourful even on a dull day, up to Macleod's Standing Stone with fab views over beautiful Harris.

    Stunning views too across the water to Scarista and the hill , Ceaphabhal.Sonehow the light on this beach is really quite something hence photographer 's often use it.
