Islay beaches and the island is surrounded with a wild, rugged, and beautiful coastline.
Islay has many spectacular beaches to enjoy.
My favourite Islay beach, one definitely worth heading to, is Machir Bay.
Here you will be treated to vast and beautiful golden sands, and a spectacular panorama of the Atlantic Ocean. Peel off those socks and shoes and enjoy sinking your feet into the warm sand and dipping your toes into the soothing crystal clear Atlantic waves.
With coastline all around, choose from the golden sands of Saligo, Ardnave, and the Big Strand.
There are so many beautiful Islay beaches to choose from. Venture with me on a walk around the point at Ardnave Point in our Islay Beaches blog here
For spectacular cliffs head to the Oa, and watch the Atlantic rollers come crashing in.
The remote and rocky coastline of Islay’s north and north east coast is just a short distance from Persabus. Peppered with tiny coves, it is a perfect wilderness to explore and enjoy solitude. The seals often follow me on my walks along the coast, as oyster catchers, swans and otters come out to play.
