Saligo Bay

Season: summer

Nestled to the south of the rock formation known as the “Sleeping Giant”, Saligo Bay and its beach are probably the most naturally beautiful on Islay.  The bay faces west, so this is an ideal place to enjoy a sunset.  The light is clear and photographers are drawn here.   Access is by foot and there’s no car park or any toilets.  You approach over the dunes and the spectacular beach is well worth the effort.
