This is the premier surfing beach in the Western Isles, pointing due west to face the Atlantic breakers. As well as the water sports that are available here, the sand dunes and machair behind the beach are a haven for birds like the corncrake and numerous wild flowers and orchids in the summer. Access is good from the adjacent A865 and there is plenty of space to park.
