Our Favourite Beaches

We highly recommend checking out some of our favourite beaches on your trip to Skye.

CORAL BEACH

The beach has been formed with crushed white coral which appears similar to seaweed. When illuminated by the sun, it produces a stunning tropical blue hue in the water. It is a truly enchanting location, ideal for a family picnic and even a swim.

ELGOL BEACH

Renowned for its magnificent vistas of Loch Scavaig and the dramatic Black Cuillins peaks, Elgol is also famed for its unique ‘honeycomb’ cliffs that soar up from the rocky shoreline.

BEARRERAIG BAY

One can take a short but steep walk to reach the stunning Bearreraig Bay, which is known for its fossils. Despite its beauty, this is a secluded and peaceful spot, especially when compared to the bustling crowds of tourists that typically surround the nearby Old Man of Storr.
