Barra's Beaches

Our beaches are not just the best in Britain - they're on a par with the most idyllic spots in the Caribbean, and with more variety to boot. We're privileged to have a beach across the road from the cottage, with another behind the airport and a few more further north in Eoiligarry.

Around Barra, you can take your pick from dramatic west-coast beaches where the Atlantic waves crash in, or head to more sheltered spots that face east. Drive or cycle across the causeway to Vatersay and you'll find more lovely sands, and if you're still not satisfied, you can always arrange a boat trip to Pabbay or Sandray.

A few glimpses of Barra's beaches and après-swim fun - with music from the island's own Vatersay Boys, live at Glasgow's Barrowlands. You'll find a few beach lists around the internet, and while Welcome Scotland's Barra Beach List isn't complete, it's a good starting point.
