Reef Beach

Reef Beach sits by Kneep on the Isle of lewis. The beach is a sandy wide beach great for shell-seekers.

In summer you can also soak up the lovely display of ‘machair’, the carpet of glorious wildflowers renowned in this part of the world. Behind the beach the dunes give way to cliffs, giving you magnificent views over the bay.

This beach is a great spot for swimming in the calm blue waters or why not just enjoy a picnic on the sands.
