Recommended to us by a local guy in Tobermory and it turned out to be a highlight of our visit. Not the most accessible place to get to so just as well we had taken our car across on the ferry. The bay itself is wide, with lots of white sand and clear blue water so it would be great... More

Visited this beach today. Was a very twisty windy road to get there but most definitely worth it. Absolutely stunning with its white sand and clear blue water, if it wasn't for the temperature you could be forgiven for thinking you were somewhere tropical. Well worth a visit

My young son and I spent an hour or so at the beach when the tide had just gone out. The sand is golden and water is crystal clear, not that one can bathe in it in April! There are great walks from the beach on the headland. One of the most beautiful spots that we visited on Mull. An... More

This has it all. A beautiful beach which is very safe for youngsters ( clear water, clean sands). A superb walk along the coast on the right of the bay, past the pier from which people left this land during The Clearances (an eagle was hunting a hundred yards away from us at one point). Another walk through woodland dotted... More

This is one of the best places to take sunrise/sunset photos, the colours are amazing. The bay itself is beautiful, and a great place for a picnic. I think you can camp here, there are some tables and plenty of flat area for sitting and watching the wildlife.

I adore the Hebrides, and was excited to visit this beach after reading all the reviews. We didn't have very long on Mull, and I wish I'd picked one of the other beaches to visit in the few days that we had! It's nice and clean, with beautiful clear waters - but just not as stunning as I was expecting.... More

This is a stunning beach and well worth a visit. It's quite a drive from Tobermory. The roads are single track and have lots of hairpin bends so you need to go slowly. It's worth stopping to admire some of the views on the way. There's a car park just behind the dunes and you can down to the beach.... More

This gorgeous bay and sandy beach is beautiful, both for a walk along and to admire from the cliff tops as you head South down the island.

Beautiful and definitely worth a visit. Nothing to do and it's in the middle of what seems like nowhere but I'm glad I had the chance to see this beautiful beach.
