My husband and I stayed at Sango Sands Oasis for 3 days and loved every minute of it. Sango Bay is a small beach but what it lacks in size is more than made up for in beauty. The short stretch of sand, the rocky...More

My husband and I had been meaning to visit this area for years! Finally made the trip and it was so worthwhile. Stunning scenery, beautiful sands, lovely colour and the water is something else.

Just along from Durness, and just beneath a caravan park, the beach at Sango bay is another fine stretch of sand from which to enjoy the beautiful blue sea. There are also several large rocks on the beach, which add a bit of extra interest.

Sango Bay is another spectacular bay on the north coast route. Seems to be less visited than most due to lack of signage and parking, despite being a few hundred metres from the main road. Pink highlights from the ancient Torridonian Sandstone on the otherwise...More

Camped at the local site on the edge of the village while doing the NC500, fabulous, with pitch overlooking the bay. Sango Bay was a real surprise, empty beach, beautiful sand with large rocks to make it interesting too. Why go abroad when we have...More

Beautiful beach with amazing rock formations. It is actually almost 3 beaches in one with each separated from the next by the tide when it is in. All are spotlessly clean.

Every beach gets better and better. The sands are so white. Its amazing to find in Scotland if the weather was always so nice this would be superb.
