Drove up to the little car park - be aware, it may be busy in summer - parked up and headed off on our walk. It is a pleasant stroll along a bit of the coast where you can keep an eye out for an array of wildlife from seabirds to whales, dolphins, seals and maybe eagles! The walk is... More

loved this little beach, such a surprise when you walk over the top of the hill and it's before you, fantastic views in all directions, and we saw a few seals on a nearby island. just lovely!

It's like you are treated to a little bit of the Caribbean in the north west of Scotland as there is almost white sand and a green/blue sea but be warned : this is only a small area and you have to walk just over a mile (2 km?) from the car park to reach it !

Suspect it would be nicer on a sunny day but I have to agree that it's not as spectacular as the hype. Took about 40 minutes from the car park to get out to the headland. Lovely views and location overall. Stopped off at the Lochside cafe on the way back near Dunvegan Castle for larger than life toasties!

This beach is well worth the mile walk from the car park. The contrasts and colours is nature at it very best.

I would give this place the skip next time. Other places in Skye offer a lot more. However, the drive leading upto this place is absolutely beautiful. The beach itself is very very disappointing. Average at best.

We were really lucky with the weather when we arrived and after the short 15 minute walk in the afternoon sun we upon the beach. The pictures really do not do this justice - and walking up onto the small hill at the end of beach gives an aspiring view of the area. On the drive back keep an eye... More

Lovely walk from small car park down to gorgeous beach. Our lab Marley loved it and the scenery is breathtakingly beautiful. Allow about hour and half there and back depending of course if you can drag yourself away.

You pull into a small car about a 5 minute drive past Dunvegan Castle. From there you walk a well laid out path to a small coral beach, keep on walking over the hill between a large dry stone dyke. At the top of the hill you get the first view of the Coral Beach. It is absolutely stunning, especially... More
