We went in search of our dream beach in our campervan on the Isle of Harris with its crushed shell white glistening beaches that are absolutely stunning. All of the beaches listed here are dog-friendly.
Luskentyre is recognised as the 13th best beach in the world for 2020 by TripAdvisor! Our dream beach has pristine white sands and aqua-marine waters.
Luskentyre beach is good for sailing, kite surfing, kayaking and swimming. Our campervan was parked very close to the beach.
The most popular beach in the Hebrides (The Beach Guide). At the end of a long windy road, through the mystical gates of Amhuinnsuidhe Castle, is a perfectly sheltered white beach with aqua-marine waters and rock pools. Huisinis beach is good for kite surfing, kayaking, swimming, snorkelling, fishing and sailing. Overnight pitch on the edge of Huisinis beach.
Seilebost beach on the south side of Luskentyre Bay was once voted one of the top 10 beaches in the world! Take in the panoramic view of Seilebost, as it is simply breath-taking:
Horgabost has a pristine sandy beach with green-blue waters. Good for kite surfing, paddle boating, kayaking, swimming, snorkelling and fishing for Mackerel. Our campervan was parked very close to the beach.
Take in the green-blue sea of Horgabost beach:
Ceapabhal and Scarista beach:
Ceapabhal mountain mist rises above the magnificent span of white sand.
Northton has a few white sandy beaches with its very own ruined late medieval Temple. Take in the spectacular array of Machair with wild orchids, as you walk along the cliffs of the Northton beaches.
Bosta beach on Great Bernera has a Time and Tide bell mounted on a skerry and when the tide rises the bell rings with a range of tones. You can see loads of soaring Gannets dive bombing for fish from Bosta beach or the cliff tops. You may be lucky and see the White-Tailed Sea Eagle!
Our campervan was situated close to Bosta Beach!
