Luskentyre Beach has been elected Britain's best beach and declared to be in the top ten beaches in the world. It is located on the west coast of Harris, in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. The beach is known for the stunning white sand that goes for miles and for the splendid green-blue waters lapping up onto its coast.
Luskentyre Bay on the Isle of Harris is a quiet, unspoilt shell sand bay. Wildlife in the zone includes the common scoter, the velvet scoter, the Eider duck, the wigeon, the long-tailed duck, the red-breasted merganser, the great northern diver, and the Slavonian grebe. Sometimes, wild ponies are observed grassing along the dunes, but they're not the sole nature to be spied. Otters, seals, dolphins, eagles and deer all call Harris home.
The landscape includes stunning sand dunes and the island of Taransay, known for being the setting of the BBC’s Castaway.
